The 167th Annual Convention of the Episcopal Diocese of North 
Carolina was held in Durham, North Carolina, January 27-29, 1983. 



Thursday Evening 

The opening Service of the Convention was held in the Duke Univer- 
sity Chapel at 7:30 P.M. on January 27th and consisted of the Recognition 
and Investiture of the Right Reverend Robert Whitridge Estill, D.Min., 
D.D., as the Ninth Bishop of the Diocese of North Carolina. The Most 
Reverend John M. Allin, D.D., Presiding Bishop and Primate of the Am- 
erican Episcopal Church, was in charge and chief celebrant at the 
Eucharist. Other Bishops present were the Right Reverend Thomas A. 
Fraser, D.D., S.T.D., L.H.D., retired Bishop of North Carolina, and the 
Right Reverend Frederick W. Putnam, Jr., retired Bishop of Navajoland. 
The sermon was delivered by Bishop Estill. Following the Service, a re- 
ception was held in Bryan Center, Voncannon Hall, on the Duke Univer- 
sity campus. 

First Business Day— Friday 

The Convention convened in the Sheraton University Center, Durham 
at 9:30 A.M. with the Bishop of North Carolina presiding. He introduced 
the Presiding Bishop, who addressed the delegates and guests. Bishop Es- 
till then presented the Honorable Terry Sanford, President of Duke Uni- 
versity, who welcomed the Convention. The Order for Daily Morning 
Prayer, Rite I, was then conducted by the Rev. C. Thomas Midyette, III. 

After thanking the Rev. Philip R. Byrum and his Commission on Litur- 
gy and Worship for their work in preparing for Thursday evening's ser- 
vice, Bishop Estill recognized his wife, Joyce. The Chairman of the Con- 
vention's Host Committee, Mrs. A. Banks Anderson, Jr., then welcomed 
the Convention on behalf of the Episcopal Churches of Chapel Hill and 
Durham. 

The presence of a constitutional quorum was certified by the Acting 
Secretary, the Rev. Carl F. Herman, who, on motion duly passed, was re- 



70 Diocese of North Carolina 



elected Secretary of the Convention. His nomination of the Rev. Philip R. 
Byrum as Assistant Secretary was confirmed. 

Two nominations of the Bishop were confirmed, to wit: The Honorable 
James M. Exum, Jr. as Parliamentarian, and Mr. Joseph B. Cheshire, Jr. 
as Chancellor, the latter to serve out the unexpired term of Mr. A. L. Pur- 
rington, Jr., who had resigned. 

The report of the Committee on Credentials was given by its Chair- 
man, the Rev. Warwick Aiken, Jr., who reported that the Committee had 
met with the Secretary, examined the credentials of the delegates and 
found them to be in order. He then moved that Ms. Olivia Feduccia be 
seated as the delegate from Holy Trinity Church, Townsville, in place of 
R. V. Adams, and that Mrs. Marianne Aiken be seated as a delegate in 
place of David Cook from St. Luke's Church, Eden. The motion was sec- 
onded and passed. 

The report of the Committee on the Admission of Congregations was 
presented by the Rev. G. Markis House, Chairman, assisted by the Rev. 
J. Gary Gloster and Ms. Dorothy R. Leckie, members of the Committee 
(see page 1 10). On separate motions duly passed, the several mission con- 
gregations mentioned in the report were admitted into union with the 
Convention. In each case the priest-in-charge was recognized, and he in 
turn introduced the delegate (and any other members present) to the 
Convention. 

On motion duly passed, Christ Church, Rocky Mount, an organized 
mission of the Diocese, was admitted into union with the Convention as a 
parish, its priest recognized and its delegates and other members present 
presented to the Convention. 

The Rev. John R. Campbell, Chairman of the Committee on Dispatch 
of Business, presented the report of that Committee, being the Conven- 
tion Agenda, which included five special orders of business and a Special 
Rule of Order (see page 111). On motion duly passed, the report was 
adopted after the special rule had been amended by adding to item 2 the 
sentence, "No vote by orders shall be taken." 

Mr. Henry W. Lewis, Chairman of the Committee on Structure and Or- 
ganization, gave a preliminary report and requested of the Chair that all 
proposed amendments thereto be called for at this time. Responding to 
the call of the Bishop, amendments were offered by Mr. Sydenham B. Al- 
exander, Jr., Mr. Joseph B. Cheshire, Jr., and by the Rev. Messrs. Paul D.

Martin and C. Thomas Midyette, III. They were referred to the Commit- 
tee on Constitutions and Canons. Mr. Lewis then moved the adoption of 
the Committee's report in its entirety. The motion was seconded by the 
Rev. Huntington Williams, Jr., Chairman of the Committee on Constitu- 
tion and Canons. 

After a short break, the Bishop introduced the following clergy, who 
had become canonically resident in the Diocese since the last Annual 
Convention: The Rev. Jacqueline M. Schmitt, the Rev. Margaret H. Min- 
nick, and the Rev. Messrs. Stephen J. Elkins-Williams, George B. 
Holmes, Robert C. Gregg, Lyonel W. Gilmer, Grant O. Folmsbee, and 
William E. Smyth. Also introduced were the Rev. Messrs. Kenneth W.

his time and talent in rending invaluable service to his 
Church, both in his parish and in this Diocese, and particular- 
ly during the last decade as this Diocese's able Chancellor; 

Now therefore, upon the occasion of his retirement as 
Chancellor, this Convention, with the affectionate good

82 Diocese of North Carolina 

Address of the Bishop 

to the 167th Convention 
of the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina 



Past 

No one could wear the ring with the shield of the Diocese of North Car- 
olina on it without having a sense of history. 

The first enlargement of it probably existed on a rude map executed by 
the earliest settlers to the coast of North Carolina. It represents two ves- 
sels riding at anchor outside the Sound. A single-masted little boat, bear- 
ing at its prow a man holding an uplifted cross in his hand, is making 
towards the shore as if to testify the desire of the adventurers for the 
propagation of Christianity in the lands they had discovered. 

Sir Walter Raleigh himself gave the first gift of money ( 100 pounds ster- 
ling) for evangelizing America. Soon we will celebrate the 400th anniver- 
sary of the baptism of the first child born to these settlers, Virginia Dare. 
We have a rich historical legacy in this place. 

In preparing this first Annual Address as Bishop, I went to the records 
of my eight predecessors. Dr. Lawrence London, in his fine biography of 
Bishop Cheshire, quotes from that Bishop's first "annual address" (1894), 
which he opened by saying: "I cannot bring into any order or method in 
my own mind, much less can I put it into words, the feelings which this 
occasion calls up. To no one can it seem stranger than it does to myself 
that I should occupy this place, and thus address you from the chair of 
Ravenscroft, of Atkinson, and of him so lately taken from us (Bishop 
Lyman)." 

It is interesting that he omitted Levi Silliman Ives, who followed Bish- 
op Ravenscroft in 1831 and was deposed for going into the Roman Catho- 
lic Church in 1853, after nearly twenty-two years of service. 

Portraits of the Bishops of the Diocese hang in our Diocesan House and 
when Bishop Fraser's joins them I will be literally "surrounded by a great 
cloud of witnesses." I can add the names of Edwin Penick, Richard Baker 
and Thomas Fraser to the chairs referred to by Bishop Cheshire, along 
with Suffragans Moore and Delaney. 



Address of the Bishop 83 



It is good to feel oneself a part of history and I am eager for all of us to 
benefit from it. With Bishop Fraser's retirement the matter of archives 
came before us. While the records and papers of most of our former Bish- 
ops are preserved in the Southern Historical Collection's Archives in 
Chapel Hill, our own archives have been sadly neglected and the space 
for records in the basement of Diocesan House is badly used. I am calling 
on the Diocesan Council to consider the proposals made by a trained ar- 
chivist who assisted Bishop Fraser with his papers and to act to bring our 
archives up to the kinds of standards they deserve. This will cost some 
money and may necessitate a full-time archivist for a time, but in my op- 
inion it is not only worth it, it is an obligation that we must fulfill. Our 
Structure and Organization Report has more to say on this, and a struc- 
tural plan to implement it. 

Present 

The work of the Structure and Organization Committee has occupied a 
great deal of my time for the past two and a half years. I am sure you join 
me in expressing gratitude to Henry Lewis of Chapel Hill, who chaired 
this important work. So too, Margaret Wiley, Dorothy Manning, John 
Campbell, Zachery Smith, and Michael Schenck worked long and hard. 
Arthur Calloway was an original member but unable to participate ex- 
cept in receiving the work as it progressed. Bishop Fraser called the Com- 
mittee into existence and attended most of the meetings for the first year. 
Much of our energy and interest will be taken by these proposals at this 
Convention. The thing that excites me most about the Report is that it 
seeks to involve more of us in the actual work of the Diocese. 

It broadens the responsibility and enlarges the scope of the Conven- 
tion, the Council and the members of our Diocesan family. It strengthens 
the congregations and Institutions and sharpens the functions of diocesan 
bodies. I am grateful to Hunt Williams and the members of the Commit- 
tee on Constitution and Canons who have worked closely with this and 
have concurred with the revisions which will be required. As the Com- 
mittee Report states, "... we present our report . . . with the conviction 
that the changes we advocate can strengthen the Church for its tasks in 
the coming years." 

You will have read the Reports of other Commissions and Committees 
as they appeared in The Communicant. I want to emphasize the work of 
two of those Commissions which have a high priority with me as I begin 
my service as Diocesan. The first is our Commission on Stewardship. The 
Rev. Dr. Glenn Busch of High Point and his members have laid the 
ground-work for a Diocesan emphasis on this vital part of our Christian 
life. While he will be speaking on this issue, I want to call on every mem- 



84 Diocese of North Carolina 



ber of this Diocese to consider stewardship in its broadest sense. We plan 
a Conference on this with The Rev. Thomas Carson from our National 
Church and we plan to make Stewardship Education available to every 
congregation in this coming year. This will be one of the most important 
tasks of our new Program Director when we find one. 

My second point of emphasis has to do with our task force on Evange- 
lism and Renewal. The Rev. William Mclnnis of Scotland Neck and his 
Committee are hard at work on this. I am delighted over the enthusiasm 
and interest shown in Diocesan Retreats, the Cursillo Movement, Mar- 
riage Encounter, and Faith Alive Weekends. And our young people will 
soon have a "Happening" to attend. We need to take seriously the com- 
mission to "preach the gospel to all nations" and evangelism, like 
stewardship, is just another word describing the actions of Christians. As 
I have already demonstrated, I plan to have an Annual Retreat with the 
clergy as well as with the women and men and young people. Our splen- 
did Conference Center is a perfect setting for such "times apart." Still, 
these "retreats" must lead us back down the mountain into the needs of 
the multitudes. Those "multitudes" today include people in desperate 
spiritual and physical need right in our own communities. They include a 
world that is hungry, poor and, in many places, destitute. Those 
multitudes press on us, asking that we do with our lives what we say 
with our lips. Our Diocesan Parish Grant Committee stands ready with 
funds to aid those congregations which need seed money for programs of 
outreach and service. The Rev. Lex Mathews will have more to say about 
this. I hope you will read the report of the Parish Grant Committee 
printed in The Communicant. 

So it is that evangelism demands service. I hope to expand our Chris- 
tian Social Ministries which many of you are already carrying out. That 
takes place right where we are and it goes, as Jesus said it would, "even 
to the ends of the earth." The fine work The Thompson Home and Or- 
phanage is performing on the one end of human need and the equally 
fine work of the Penick Home on the other continue to deserve our 
wholehearted support, involvement and encouragement. Both need to 
expand to meet the ever-increasing needs. The Rev. Nick White of South- 
ern Pines and our Overseas Committee are, with my hearty approval and 
support, continuing the work we have been doing in Haiti. We are also, 
with the encouragement of the Council, exploring a "Companion Rela- 
tionship" with another Diocese overseas. We will stay in close touch 
with the Council on this and an announcement of our choice (and theirs 
of us!) will come soon. This relationship will be similar to the one we en- 
joyed with Panama and is another avenue of service and evangelism. 



Address of the Bishop 85 



Renewal and Evangelism call for education too. I am particularly inter- 
ested in deepening this Diocese's involvement with St. Augustine's Col- 
lege and St. Mary's College. Both are unique institutions and they de- 
serve our whole-hearted support and interest. If there are ways I can in- 
crease our assistance to them in the work of education they are perform- 
ing, I pledge that support during my time as Bishop. I am vitally concern- 
ed with continuing education for our clergy and their families and plan to 
continue making funds available for that and using our local resources as 
well. The Rev. Dr. John Westerhoff and The Rev. Dr. Robert Gregg are 
now members of our clergy family and they serve on the faculty of The 
Divinity School at Duke. They, along with The Rev. Dr. Franklin Young 
and The Rev. Dr. Harmon Smith give us a wealth of talent and I plan to 
use them as much as they will let me. Dean Dennis Campbell of The Di- 
vinity School and I have been in conversations as he begins his Deanship 
and I am excited over the possibilities that are there. I will have more to 
say later in this Convention about our support of our own seminaries. As 
many of you know, I am equally committed to lay continuing education. 
As the new Prayer Book makes clear, "the ministers of the church are lay 
persons, bishops, priests, and deacons." And it states that the ministry of 
lay persons is "to represent Christ and his Church; to bear witness to him 
wherever they may be; and, according to the gifts given them, to carry on 
Christ's work of reconciliation in the world; and to take their place in the 
world; and to take their place in the life, worship and governance of the 
church." 

We simply must provide regular and adequate education for that min- 
istry just as we do for those of us who are ordained. I am looking to The 
Rev. Taylor Scott, our Diocesan Continuing Education Officer, for help in 
this. 

Another part of the ministry of the Church we have not had in this Dio- 
cese is the Permanent Diaconate— I am working with our Commission on 
Ministry on this and already we have several serious aspirants waiting 
for us to develop that program. This is being done in a number of dio- 
ceses including the Roman Catholic Diocese of Charlotte and I plan to 
have our program ready in the next year. It excites me to think of reopen- 
ing this ministry to women and men who are called, "to represent Christ 
and his Church, particularly as a servant of those in need; and to assist 
bishops and priests in the proclamation of the Gospel and the administra- 
tion of the sacraments." {Book of Common Prayer, p. 856). 



86 Diocese of North Carolina 

Future 

One of the most important new Commissions I will appoint at this Con- 
vention is one I have called "North Carolina 2000." This is a long-range 
planning commission to help us set our goals and to arrive at them by the 
year 2000. The Rev. Dudley Colhoun of Winston- Salem has agreed to 
head this Commission and I look forward to working with them as they 
begin their work. Unless we plan for the future, the future will plan for 
us. In order to do our Lord's work and to utilize the gifts and talents He 
has given us, we must set plans and dream dreams and see visions. With- 
out such vision, "the people perish." 

Conclusion 

From past to present to future I am thrilled and excited to be a part of 
this great Diocese and I hope you are too. We have a goodly heritage, a 
demanding and important present and an exciting and challenging fu- 
ture. Of course the action and the most vital life is with you in our con- 
gregations where in worship, education, pastoral care, evangelism, and 
service you live and serve. As I have said many times, I see my primary 
role as a Bishop as being with you in those endeavors in your congrega- 
tions. One of the high points in this Convention will be the admission of 
ten of our congregations into union with us. It also gladdens my heart to 
see Christ Church, Rocky Mount become a parish and to note St. Eliza- 
beth's, King as a newly-formed congregation. Plans are under way in 
Charlotte for at least two new congregations and hopefully another will 
form in Greensboro before our next Convention. At least one of these 
new congregations will be predominately black since we are planning to 
open it in a black neighborhood in Charlotte. I hope to increase the num- 
ber of black clergy and to plan for the expansion of our work in our ele- 
ven black congregations. Of course all of our congregations are open to 
all persons but a number of our churches are predominately black and 
prefer to be that way. We need another black congregation with a full- 
time priest in our largest city, Charlotte. 

How glad I am to be opening places rather than closing them! 

We are united in something bigger than our congregations. We are 
united in our Diocese and in our National Church and united beyond that 
with all our brothers and sisters in Christ. Indeed, we are surrounded on 
every side by a great cloud of witnesses. One of those stood in that little 
boat long ago holding an uplifted cross in his hand. We thank God for 
him and for calling each of us here to this goodly land.

Convention Reports 



110 Diocese of North Carolina 

Report of the Committee on 
the Admission of Congregations 

The Committee on the Admission of Congregations met three times 
this year. As we requested at the 166th Convention meeting in Winston- 
Salem, we met with the then Bishop Coadjutor, The Right Reverend 
Robert Estill, and explored together the mission and task of our Commit- 
tee. We also received and approved for recommendation the application 
of a Mission seeking union with Convention as a Parish. 

At subsequent meetings we received applications from ten (10) Mis- 
sions—formerly known as Unorganized Missions, seeking union with 
Convention as Missions in the Diocese of North Carolina. 

The Committee has contacted each Mission to review their application 
and acquaint them with the necessary requirements to maintain this sta- 
tus of being in union with Convention. 

The Committee is pleased to report all Canonical requirements have 
been complied with and wishes to introduce these congregations to this 
Convention for approval and admission. 

We therefore move that the following congregations of the Episcopal 
Church in the Diocese of North Carolina be admitted into union with this 
Convention with all rights, privileges and responsibilities thereof: 

Ansonville, All Souls 
Burlington, St. Athanasius' 
Durham, Ephphatha 
Germanton, St. Philip's 
Iredell Co., St. James' 
Kittrell, St. James' 
Louisburg, St. Matthias' 
Townsville, Holy Trinity 
Troy, St. Mary Magdalene 
Woodleaf, St. George's 

The Committee has also received from Christ Church, Rocky Mount, a 
duly constituted Organized Mission of the Protestant Episcopal Church 
in the Diocese of North Carolina, an application to be admitted into 
union with this Convention as a parish. 



Convention Reports 111 



Having assured ourselves that all requirements of the Constitution and 
Canons of this Church and Diocese have been met, we recommend that 
Christ Church, Rocky Mount, North Carolina be admitted into union 
with this Convention as a parish with all rights, privileges and responsi- 
bilities thereof. 

The experience of the members of the Committee on the Admission of 
Congregations shared, as we contacted and studied these congregations, 
has been exhilarating. We really felt a sense of doing the Gospel and we 
are grateful for the opportunity of serving the Diocese in this manner. 

I wish to thank the members of the Committee: 

The Rev. J. Gary Gloster 
Mrs. John Shields 
Ms. Dot Shields 
Mr. I. W. Murfree 

for their diligence and hard work in tasks splendidly performed. 

The Reverend G. Markis House

Report of the 
Murdoch Memorial Society 

The Francis J. Murdoch Memorial Society is established by Canon 
XVII of the Constitution and Canons of the Diocese to administer a Trust 
established in 1912 by the late Miss Margaret Murdoch of Charleston, 
S.C., in memory of her brother, the Reverend Francis Johnstone Mur- 
doch, Rector of St. Luke's, Salisbury, N.C., from 1872 until his death in 
1909. 

The Society was organized for the purpose of making loans to Episcopal 
students enrolled in Seminary. The loans are made after consideration of 
the financial status and overall need of the applicant, whose goal must be 
ordination to the Priesthood of the Episcopal Church. Although the Trust 
document does not so specify, the Society has limited consideration to 
Seminarians from this Diocese since funds are quite limited. The Loans 
are cancelled upon a recipient's ordination to the Dioconate. If a person 
fails to be ordained, the loans become payable in five years. 

The income per quarter to the Fund is approximately $500.00. As of 
January 1, 1982, our balance was about $1,200.00. No loans have been 



Convention Reports 115 



made during this calendar year, since we have failed to receive any ap- 
plications which could qualify for a grant. Therefore, by January 1, 1983, 
there will be approximately $2,000.00 in additional funds. This may be 
somewhat less, depending on interest rates. 

Applicants for loans should first consult their Rectors, then make ap- 
plication to the Convener of the Society, from whom the necessary forms 
may be requested. 

Persons interested in contributing to the funds of the Society should 
contact the Treasurer of the Diocese. 

The Reverend Hugh A. Whitesell 



Report on Deaf Congregations 

It seems like only a short time since our last convention when a canoni- 
cal change was passed that will allow our deaf members to vote for the 
first time in the history of a seventy-year ministry. This year in Durham, 
delegates from Ephphatha, Durham/Raleigh, and St. Athanasius, Burling- 
ton will have seat and vote upon recommendation of the committee on 
New Congregations. Interpreters will be provided for the entire conven- 
tion and full participation is expected. 

Full participation has been the theme of our ministry together among 
the hearing impaired. The congregations at St. Paul's, Winston- Salem and 
at St. Andrew's, Greensboro decided early in the year not to separate into 
independent missions, but to remain members of these parishes, with the 
idea of "mainstreaming" themselves more into the corporate life of each 
parish. At St. Paul's, deaf members attended the annual meeting and vot- 
ed for parish officers. Through the use of interpreters, various events 
were opened during the year to full participation. In addition to regular 
signed and interpreted services, in September, a "Joint" service was held 
wherein the Missioner and the Rev. George Glazier simultaneously voic- 
ed and signed the entire service, again, with the deaf people participating 
fully. 

The most successful event of the year was our attempt to 
"mainstream" three deaf adults through our Diocesan Summer Adult 
Conference. Kathleen Crutchfield, Annie Brown and Reece Hearne 
watched with great interest as the words of Verna Dozier came through 



116 Diocese of North Carolina 



the hands of our interpreters. All three joined in completely, participating 
even in the response groups and workshops. Most beneficial also was the 
impact on the hearing community, who experienced the world of silence 
in a new and exciting way. 

Continuing his work on a part-time, volunteer basis, Mr. Paul Kolisch 
has once again proved himself invaluable as he visits families and con- 
ducts morning and evening prayers in sign language in the 
Raleigh/Durham area. Paul, who is also a pilot, has helped the Missioner 
make a number of "fast trips" around the country, including a speaking 
engagement at the annual convention of the Diocese of Western North 
Carolina. The occasion was to acknowledge the new, full-time ministry 
among the deaf which now exists in Western Carolina. The Rev. John 
Rivers is the Missioner who serves congregations in Asheville and Mor- 
ganton, and who has begun a ministry among students at the North Caro- 
lina School for the Deaf in Morganton. Our Missioner was pleased to as- 
sist as consultant in the early development of that position. 

At the present time, services for the hearing impaired in our own Dio- 
cese are provided in the following ways. In the Raleigh/Durham area we 
meet twice a month, alternating between St. Philip's, Durham and Good 
Shepherd, Raleigh. In Burlington, the congregation uses St. Athanasius 
Church on a monthly basis, with interpreted services in the Church of 
the Holy Comforter on other Sundays. Greensboro has only one service 
per month in the chapel of St. Andrew's Church. In Winston-Salem, a 
monthly signed service in the chapel is supplemented by interpreted ser- 
vices in the main church on other Sundays. Weekday events are 
interpreted as well. Work among the deaf in Charlotte is in a state of flux. 
Various hearing impaired Episcopalians are attached to parishes scatter- 
ed around the city. We think they should remain there with the use of 
interpreters. However, it is necessary for the deaf community to gather 
on a regular basis for separate fellowship. Our attempt in the coming 
year will be to find a focal point, a parish that is central and open to this 
ministry. Several areas are under consideration. 

During the week, the Missioner answers pastoral needs, teaches sign 
language classes, and provides interpreting when possible. He is also ac- 
tive in state-wide organizations for the deaf which are an important part 
of this ministry. Full affiliation is also continued with our national organi- 
zation, The Episcopal Conference of the Deaf. 

In the coming year, with budget approval pending, we hope to expand 
our work in areas such as Wilson and Southern Pines, where a successful 



Convention Reports 117 



Deaf Awareness Day was recently held at Emmanuel Church. We also 
hope that full participation in the Annual Convention will bring a new 
level of awareness to the deaf community, thereby increasing our activity 
at all levels of the Diocese. We look forward to it!

Report of the 
Education and Training Committee 

This committee of twenty (20) clergy and laypersons has been very in- 
volved in its work all year, especially in six areas of responsibility: 

1. Sewanee's Education for Ministry Program— Involvement in this 
program has expanded to 166 participants who study under mentors thir- 
ty-six (36) times a year, plus their own required study-time in Sewanee's 
four-year education for lay ministry. Such increase has led us to change 
our structure and appoint Mary Kay Hildebrandt of Greensboro to be 
Program Coordinator, while the Rev. Bill Coolidge continues as Mentor 
Trainer. Many of the program participants attended an E.F.M. Confer- 
ence at Browns Summit in December. 

2. The Summer Adult Conference— Our second full conference at 
Browns Summit. This was held in June and Verna Dozier was our key- 
noter; Betsey Savage of Graham was the coordinator. The 1983 Confer- 



Convention Reports 119 



ence is now being designed under the direction of the Rev. Philip Craig. 
The Rev. Joseph Russell, author of "Sharing Our Biblical Story," will be 
our keynoter. 

3. Seed Money— The Committee provided seed monies and consultant 
help for several new programs and conferences, including one for clergy 
wives, the E.C.W. workshop and a design for small churches. We are as- 
sisting Bishop Estill in plans for a Wardens Conference in 1983. 

4. Scholarships— The Committee believes in encouraging laity to ex- 
pand their opportunities for learning by assisting with scholarship to ap- 
proved conferences. Over twenty-five (25) persons received scholarship 
to conferences at the Conference Center, Kanuga, Duke University and 
to a Province IV event. We also provided scholarships and training in de- 
sign skills and organizational development for several persons through 
MATC. The Rev. Rod Reinecke, a director of Mid Atlantic Association 
for Training and Consulting, Inc., oversees this program and also works 
with Bishop Estill in assigning consultants for vacancy and parish studies. 

5. Curriculum and Church School Needs— The Rev. Dan Riggall heads 
this new emphasis which comes out of a data survey we conducted. His 
task force is planning a conference in this area in 1983. 

6. Resources— The E.T.C. Newsletter, edited by the Rev. Roland Jones, 
is a quarterly resource for sharing information and resource helps. It goes 
to all clergy and key Christian Education persons. Education/Liturgy Re- 
sources, a retail resource center under the direction of volunteers in St. 
Stephen's, Oxford mailed books and resources to most congregations of 
the diocese. It also provides book exhibits; and oversees the limited 
audio/visuals which are available on a rental basis. 

This Committee has done vital work in this diocese and has been called 
upon to assist Christian Educators' needs in the Province. The hours, 
time and labor given by these 20 individuals is a tremendous gift of their 
interest and concern for Christian Education. This Diocese is enriched by 
their ministries. 

The Rev. Harrison T. Simons

Report of the Episcopal Churchwomen 

The Episcopal Churchwomen celebrated their 100th anniversary last 
April at a memorable occasion of the Annual Meeting in Calvary Church, 
Tarboro. There were 324 present. Jaquelin Drane Nash of Tarboro, au- 
thor of the centennial history, "The First Hundred Years," reviewed the 
history. 

We have a rich heritage. The continued existance of a strong Diocesan 
organization is no mere accident. Renewal of vision is a constant gift of 
the Spirit to the Church, and this community of people has, for over a 
hundred years, provided a multitude of ways through which its members 
could love and serve the Church, and through the Church, the world. 

Through our program of Retreats and Seminars we are able to add to 
the worship and study life of many. In January the annual Worship Re- 
treat was held. Under the superb leadership of Bishop Estill, the 74 
Churchwomen experienced deepened insight into their spiritual lives, re- 
vitalized for the beginning of the new year. In May was a Leadership 
Training Seminar. Dr. Nancy Geyer, the leader, is a nationally acclaimed 
behavioral science consultant. This was particularly designed for branch 
presidents and other officers. The Annual Seminar was held in October. 
This year the leader was Harriet Hayes, National Church Committee on 
Family. This was an outstanding three-day event. The Working Women's 
Committee held a Saturday Workshop in October at St. Stephen's, Dur- 
ham for all women who cannot attend meetings during the week. There 
were 105 in attendance. 

An anonymous donor has established a permanent fund, the "Mary 
Harris-Scott Evans Scholarship Fund," to be used to reduce the cost of 
attending the ECW conferences at the Conference Center. It is hoped that 
this fund will be added to by individuals and various branches of the 
ECW so that the women of this Diocese can more fully particpate in the 
ECW events with little regard to cost. 

The pledge of $100,000.00 to the Conference Center by the Episcopal 
Churchwomen has been paid, plus $575.00. They gave an additional 
$508.00 toward underground wiring and lights for the path leading across 
the little bridge. We are thankful for the Conference Center and are using 
and enjoying it. We are stockpiling memories there and each time we go 
it becomes more meaningful. 



Convention Reports 121 



The ECW is a basic unit for mission and service. This year they gave 
$131,000.00 to outreach projects, of which $42,900.00 was the United 
Thank Offering. As was reported at the Triennial meeting, the ingather- 
ing of the National UTO was the largest in its 93-year history. The total 
was $2.5 million. 

The lives that are changed, the despair that turns into hope, the poverty 
that becomes economic upswing, the neglected that become helping 
hands for fellow countrymen— all are realities through the work of the 
UTO. What awesome things can be done when enough people, world- 
wide, care enough. 

Continuing support of our Episcopal institutions is affirmed in the 
scholarships given to St. Mary's, St. Augustine's, and a similar amount 
given the Episcopal Child Care Service and Penick Home. 

In support of the Migrant Workers $1,000.00 was sent. There is a con- 
tinuing fund that is an emergency resource. We contribute and distribute 
blankets and clothes for the Clothing Shelter. 

The ECW sends gifts to the missionaries at Christmas. We cherish this 
relationship and communication with them. The Epiphany Offering of 
$880.00 was sent to the Rev. Mark Boesser in Alaska. We support the 
Church Periodical Club, collect vitamins and sheets for Haiti, deliver 
Meals-on-Wheels, work in soup kitchens, visit shut-ins, work in food 
banks, have special events for the aging. All of these are our privilege and 
our desire. 

The ECW is an ongoing celebration— a celebration that has a deep, 
abiding meaning which goes beyond our senses. I mean the joy which 
comes from fellowship. It is a pleasure to report to this convention in 
1983 that the Episcopal Churchwomen of this Diocese are going forth in- 
to the world learning, listening, sharing, serving, and proclaiming the 
love of Christ.

Report of the Diocesan Youth Commission 

Evaluating and expanding Diocesan Youth Ministry has been the em- 
phasis of the Diocesan Youth Department since the appointment in 



122 Diocese of North Carolina 



August of the Reverend Robert R. McGee as Volunteer Youth Coor- 
dinator. 

While continuing to support the popular Diocesan-wide retreats, the 
essence of our new Youth Program will focus on supporting Youth Min- 
istry at the parish level by providing a resource center, trained consul- 
tants for parish youth programs, and sponsoring convocational youth 
events. 

New opportunities to bring young people together on a Diocesan-wide 
basis are being explored as the Youth Department works with the long 
range Planning Committee of the Diocesan Conference Center. The 
Youth Department is expanding its support to embrace parish-related 
youth programs such as acolytes and scouting. This year's Acolytes' Fes- 
tival was well supported and a fine representation of the interest through- 
out the Diocese in our youth events. 

Additional youth retreats are being added as the Youth Department 
sponsors "The Happening." The Happening is a fun and exciting retreat 
which allows high school students to explore their faith journey with 
their peers. 

Youth Commission members were urged to participate in their 
churches' pre-convention Structure and Organization meetings so that 
members could then discuss the affects of the reorganization on Youth 
Ministry. 

The coming year holds much promise for the youth of the Diocese as 
we explore the many possible avenues of involvement.

9 October: the annual Acolyte Festival in the Duke University 
Chapel, Durham. 

23 October: "Fraser Day" Eucharist honoring Bishop and 
Mrs. Fraser, held at The Conference Center; also, lessons and 
hymns used across the Diocese the following day in thanks- 
giving for the ministry of Bishop Fraser in this Diocese. 

27-29 January 1983: the service of Installation of Bishop Estill, 
and services held during the 167th Annual Convention of the 
Diocese in Durham. 

The commission again sponsored the annual Worship and Music Camp 
for Children, held at our Conference Center at Browns Summit. This 
year's theme was "the Creed." The Rev. Philip R. Byrum, Rector of 
Christ Church, Albemarle, was camp director. The Rev. Thomas Garner, 
Rector of the Church of The Epiphany, Eden, was chaplain, and James H. 
Padgett, Organist and Choirmaster of Saint Luke's Church, Salisbury, 
was musical director. Attending this camp, 20-25 June, were 50 children 
from congregations around the Diocese. 

A Lay Reader's Workshop, under the leadership of The Rev. Robert S. 
Dannals, was held at Christ Church, Charlotte, on 8 May, in cooperation 
with our commission. The Rev. John Burker, O.P., of the Word of God 
Institute, Washington, D.C., was the leader. 

The chairman attended a portion of General Convention in September 
to observe debate and vote on the proposed Hymnal 1982. He and 
Carolyn H. Darr, a commission member, have served as reader consul- 
tants from this Diocese, dealing with the proposed texts for a new Hym- 
nal. The commission has distributed to all clergy with congregations a 
full listing of texts included in the new Hymnal 1982 that are already 



124 Diocese of North Carolina 



available for use in our churches. The new Hymnal is expected to be 
ready in mid- 1985. The use of the new volume will be voluntary. 

Meetings of the commission were held on 19 April in Eden, at the 
Church of The Epiphany, and 27 September, at the Diocesan House. 

The commission was represented at the Annual Meeting of Liturgical 
and Music Commissions at Techny, Illinois, 8-11 November. In addition, 
the commission has consulted with clergy and congregations about litur- 
gical and musical concerns, and provided programs and workshops on 
liturgy and music in local parishes. 

This commission stands ready to assist the Bishop, clergy and people of 
the Diocese.

Report of the Commission on Ministry 

The past year reflects both change and continuity for the Commission 
on Ministry. It was our last year of working with Bishop Fraser as he 
gave Bishop Estill responsibility for the men and women in the process 
toward ordination. It was our first full year of having a large number of 
people in the process. It was a time we, in collaboration with Bishop Es- 
till, added structure to that process. None of the work was without his- 
tory but in all there was change. 

First the numbers as of December 1. Two Candidates were ordained to 
the Deaconate this year, four Postulants became Candidates, three In- 
terns became Postulants, and six applicants became Interns. As a result, 
our total numbers are four Candidates, seven Postulants, and eleven In- 
terns. One applicant fits none of the categories because of previous ordi- 
nation in another denomination. Two Deacons have been called into the 
Diocese. We are trying to be helpful to them as well as to the two ordain- 
ed there last June. The Commission makes an effort to be supportive of 
all of these 27 men and women, an effort that has some lacks, but I be- 
lieve continues to improve and has generally been rewarding to us all. 

It is important for all the people in the Diocese to remain knowledge- 
able about the total process that leads toward ordination and particularly 
about the ways it has been modified in this Diocese this past year. There 



Convention Reports 125 



are, of course, the canons of the church which require that the Bishop's 
decision be supported by the Rector and Vestry of the applicant's home 
church as well as by advice from the Commission on Ministry and rec- 
ommendation of the Standing Committee. For some four years this Dio- 
cese has expected an Internship year at the beginning of the process but 
exceptions have been made. Also, the Internships began whenever ap- 
propriate arrangements could be made. 

Our new process reviews applicants for acceptance by June to begin a 
ten-month Internship in a parish in September. The Internship is a time 
for vocational testing, and for personal growth in spiritual life and in un- 
derstanding the Biblical faith. Decisions about Postulancy will be made 
in the winter for timely application to seminary. Decisions for Candidacy 
and for the Diaconate will be made in the course of the three years in the 
seminary. Following seminary, each ordinand is expected to spend the 
next year in the Diocese as a Deacon, and remain at least one but no 
more than two years under Diocesan assignment in a continuing period 
of training and formation as a Priest. The applicant for ordination in this 
Diocese is committing him or herself to a six-to seven-year process, a long 
commitment that we believe will strengthen a lifetime ministry. The re- 
sponsibility for this process will be shared with Bishop Estill and such 
others as he will appoint. 

We on the Commission have worked hard and I very much appreciate 
the cooperation of the members through many long meetings. And we 
have been continually supported by both Bishop Fraser and Bishop Estill; 
I am particularly grateful for both of them.

Report of the Overseas Mission Committee 

The Diocesan Committee on Overseas Mission has once again concen- 
trated its efforts in assisting the Episcopal Diocese of Haiti in several of its 
ministries. 

Most of this assistance continues to be in the form of recruiting physi- 
cians, surgeons, dentists, ophthalmologists, nurses, medical students, and 
residents to work at one of the two medical centers in Haiti with which 
we have a relationship. 



126 Diocese of North Carolina 



During 1982, five surgical teams totalling 35 people spent a total of 45 
days at l'Hopital Sainte Croix, a general hospital in Leogane, owned by 
the Diocese of Haiti and supported in large measure by the Medical Be- 
nevolence Foundation of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.). Those teams 
performed approximately 300 major surgical procedures at little or no 
cost to the patients. All these professionals contributed their time and all 
their expenses. This brings to 145 the number of surgical team members 
who have represented our diocese in Haiti since March, 1979. Each of 
our teams now includes a dentist. 

Also during 1982, our diocese was represented at another medical cen- 
ter located at Montrouis, where there is a seminary, a parish, a parochial 
school, a medical clinic, a dental clinic, an eye clinic, and a conference 
center. Since we began our relationship with this center in April, 1979, 
the facilities have grown and improved dramatrically, with many of the 
physical improvements having been underwritten by members of our 
groups of young people who have contributed from their own means 
while taking part in one of the young people's groups we have sponsored 
there since June, 1979. In 1982, an EYC group and a group from the Uni- 
versity of North Carolina at Chapel Hill made up work teams at Mon- 
trouis. In addition, several primary care physicians, nurses, dentists, and 
ophthalmologists spent time at Montrouis, under our diocese's sponsor- 
ship. 

The demand for work opportunities in Haiti has become so great that 
we have sought and found an additional site for work groups. Beginning 
in March, 1983, with a group from St. Paul's School, Concord, N.H., we 
will start sending teams of young people and adults to assist in the con- 
struction projects at the Church and Trade School of the Holy Spirit at 
Cap'Haitien, on the northeast coast of Haiti. 

We have begun working with individuals and groups from beyond 
North Carolina, St. Paul's School being an example. Another example is 
the placing, in 1982, of a radiologist from New Mexico for five months at 
l'Hopital Sainte Croix. Also, many professionals from the Greensville- 
Spartanburg, S.C. area work with us. 

Plans for 1983 call for the recruiting and sending of at least five surgical 
teams, a group from UNC-CH, one or more young people's groups, and 
several individual physicians, dentists, and Public Health persons. Our 
hope is to move more and more into the areas of Public Health and 
Community Development, at the suggestion and with the support of the 



Convention Reports 127 



Diocese of Haiti, its Planning Commission, and its Bishop, the Right Rev- 
erend Luc Gamier. 

Our aims all along have been— and are— to provide a way in which the 
people of North Carolina can assist the Diocese of Haiti in some creative, 
important ways, knowing that it is in the giving and sharing of our re- 
sources that we can best open ourselves to being about God's business 
now.

Report of the 
Parish Grant Program Committee 

A Diocesan Council, in an effort to offset federal cutbacks in social ser- 
vices, allocated as part of the 1982 Program and Maintenance Budgets, 
five percent of these budgets for parish outreach. The Council directed 
that these funds were to be administered through the Parish Grant Pro- 
gram. 

The Parish Grant Program provides seed money grants for parishes 
and missions of the Diocese to initiate outreach programs. These grants 
are administered by the Parish Grant Committee under specified guide- 
lines which include vestry or mission committee commitment and com- 
munity support. 

Although a concerted effort was made by the Parish Grant Committee 
to communicate to the parishes and missions of the Diocese the availabil- 
ity of these funds, less than one-half of the funds committed were utiliz- 
ed, due to the limited number of applications for grants that were receiv- 
ed by the Committee. 

The following grants were distributed in 1982: 

1. Good Shepherd Shelter, Church of the Good Shepherd, Rocky 
Mount— $1,000. 

2. Domestic Violence Services of Alamance County, Inc., Church of 
the Holy Comforter, Burlington— $3,000. 

3. God's Little Acre, St. Bartholomew's, Pittsboro— $3,000. 

4. Hospice of Iredell County, Holy Trinity, Statesville— $3,000. 

5. Family Violence and Rape Crisis Volunteers in Chatham County, 
Inc., St. Bartholomew's, Pittsboro— $3,000. 



128 Diocese of North Carolina 



6. The Methodist Episcopal Senior Housing, All Saints', 
Concord— $3,000. 

7. Davidson County Domestic Violence Services Shelter, Grace 
Church, Lexington— $3,000 and $2,000. 

8. Filling in Gaps (FIGS), Christ Church, Raleigh- $3, 000 and $2,000. 

9. Greensboro Community Soup Kitchen, St. Francis', 
Greensboro— $3,000 and $2,000. 

10. Community Soup Kitchen, St. Timothy's, Wilson— $4,120. 

The Parish Grant Committee encourages new applications for parish 
and mission outreach programs. Application forms for grants may be ob- 
tained from the Diocesan House.

Report of 
Cursillo— Diocese of North Carolina 

Cursillo is a Spanish word meaning "short course." Basically, it is a 
short course in Christian thought, idealism, and faith, focusing on how 
we as Christians may effectively live out these concepts in our daily lives. 
Cursillo originated in Majorca, Spain in the 1940' s as an instrument of re- 
newal within the Roman Catholic Communion. Cursillo as a renewal 
movement in the Episcopal Church has been growing in the Diocese of 
North Carolina since 1976. Sponsored by the Diocese for both clergy and 
laity, its purpose is to inform and strengthen the life of the Christian and 
concept of the Christian community. Cursillo is parish-oriented. It serves 
the clergy in the pastoral planning of parishes and can be used effectively 
as a tool for renewing the spiritual life of their parishioners. The Cursillo 
Movement does not propose a new theology, but is simply a method 
through which one's own spirituality may be developed, and shared in 
all areas of human life. 

The basic atmosphere of a Cursillo Weekend differs greatly from the 
individual solitude of a retreat. Cursillo is an experience in Christian liv- 
ing and sharing. In this respect it is a beginning, not an end in itself. It is 
ongoing. Cursillo begins on Thursday evening and ends on Sunday even- 
ing. During the three days those attending live and work together, listen- 
ing to talks given by priests and laity, and worshiping together in liturgy 
and song. The laity and clergy who comprise the "team" spend consider- 



Convention Reports 129 



able time working and praying together in preparation for the weekend. 
The talks cover such subjects as: Ideal, Grace, Laity in the Church, 
Faith, Piety, Study, Sacraments, Obstacles to a life of Grace, Leaders, 
Christian Community in Action, Life in Grace. Each talk is followed by a 
discussion period in small groups. During the three days, the teachings of 
Christ are discussed and experienced in a living, caring Christian atmo- 
sphere. The schedule for the three-day activity is interspersed with wor- 
ship, singing, discussion, prayer, fellowship, and moments of reflection 
and silence. 

In 1982 there have been five Cursillo Weekends in the Diocese of 
North Carolina. These have been held at the Conference Center at 
Browns Summit. Participating in these weekends have been 130 can- 
didates and 200 team members. In 1983, there are four Cursillo 
Weekends planned— April 7-10, July 7-10, September 8-11, and Novem- 
ber 10-13. Each will be held at the Conference Center.

Report of the Small Church Committee 

In our second year as a diocesan Committee, we are still in a stage of 
development. But, we have been excited by our first year's efforts. Much 
of our work has included consultations to congregations around the dio- 
cese, especially to St. John the Baptist, Wake Forest, and St. Matthew's, 
Kernersville, as they look forward, respectively, to expansion and devel- 
opment. We have met, formally and informally, with regional groups 
considering future development of new congregations, such as in Char- 
lotte and Greensboro. We are considering a regional survey for future 
needs in one or more convocations next year. Dr. Charles Orr of Durham 
is leading a task force to develop strategies for our predominantly black 
congregations. The Committee has considered and approved aid to ten 
(10) congregations. 

Mae Sherrod of Enfield has led a Task Force for Small Church Con- 
cerns, encouraging the former unorganized missions to assume their re- 
sponsibilities as voting members of Convention. This task force has also 
looked at educational opportunities for small churches, encouraging a 
Wardens' Conference for 1983. On its behalf, a Committee member met 
with Small Church educators of Virginia and Carolina dioceses to consi- 



130 Diocese of North Carolina 



der, in 1983, a series of workshops for clergy and laity of small congrega- 
tions, held in five geographical areas. 

We are encouraged by the Structure Committee's recommendation for 
the Convocations and the proposed election of a layperson to assist the 
Dean. We feel a missing link in some of our Convocations is educational 
opportunities within each region. 

The future of the small churches in our diocese looks promising. We 
see renewed interest in developing new congregations; in strengthening 
old ones; in experimentation of new styles of ministries. Clergy and laity 
together are affirming once again the richness of the Faith which is not 
limited to size. 

The Rev. Harrison T. Simons 



Report of the Committee 
for Historic St. John's, Williamsboro 

This has been an eventful year for the colonial church of St. John's. The 
Committee has overseen its care and use with great enthusiasm. Over 
700 persons visited St. John's during our open Sunday visitations from 
May 30-October 30 this year. Such interest has led the Committee to 
form a St. John's Guild. Twenty-five (25) persons have joined the Guild to 
serve as co-hosts and guides during the summer season. 

Our retiring bishop, the Right Reverend Thomas A. Fraser, was our 
guest preacher and celebrant at the annual service on the second Sunday 
of October. We also had a candlelight carol and lessons service just prior 
to Christmas. The church was also used by congregations from Raleigh 
and Durham for parish outings, and we had two marriages solemnized in 
St. John's. 

We are pleased at the response by the Guild members and the growing 
interest in St. John's throughout the diocese. The Committee invites you 
to visit the "mother church," especially during the summer season. 

The Rev. Harrison T. Simons

Report of the Committee of Friends of 
St. Mary's Episcopal Chapel, Orange County 

Services: The annual Homecoming service of St. Mary's Episcopal 
Chapel was held on October 10, 1982. During 1982 there were two wed- 
dings in the Chapel— both brides are graduates of St. Mary's Country Day 
School. Other services have not been feasible due to restoration work. 
The Committee of Friends of St. Mary's Chapel and all associated with 
St. Mary's were delighted to have The Rev. Lex Matthews of the North 
Carolina Episcopal Diocese as our minister for the Homecoming service. 
The Rev. Bill Price conducted the service, which was attended by ap- 
proximately 100 and followed by "dinner-on-the-grounds." 

Financial Activity and Contributions: From 1967 to 1980, Friends of 
St. Mary's gave approximately $15,000. In 1980, contributions slightly ex- 
ceeded $21,000. In 1981 The Chapel Fund received from the Diocese the 
proceeds of the sale of land to the St. Mary's Country Day School, some 
years ago, in the amount of $5,900. Receipts from a fundraising letter and 
the annual Homecoming service in 1981 were approximately $2,500. 
During 1982, through Homecoming Day, receipts were about $5,500. 

Progress in 1982 and Proposed Goals for 1983: As approved in Oc- 
tober 1981, the work on the interior walls has been finished except for 
painting, which is to be done in a final phase. At its regular meeting pre- 
ceding Homecoming Day on Saturday, October 9, the Committee of 
Friends of St. Mary's Episcopal Chapel received for consideration a pre- 
liminary drawing of proposed landscaping for The Chapel— a portion of 
work of the long-range planning committee. There was agreement to in- 
crease security by installing a door alarm on each door and placing appro- 
priate labels in the windows. 

Of those items listed on the September 1, 1981 letter from Mr. Isley to 
Mr. Weeks, the status of those under first priority is as follows: 

a. Numbers 1 and 2 have been completed. 

b. For Number 7 an alternate, less expensive option will be complete 
by January 1, 1983. 

c. Numbers 5 and 6 are in process and the fixtures will be reviewed on 
December 22, 1982 at a scheduled meeting of the Committee of Friends. 

d. Bids are being sought on Numbers 3, 8 and 9 for work early in 1983. 

e. Numbers 4 and 10 will be scheduled as final items to be completed 
in the summer of 1983. 



132 Diocese of North Carolina 



All interior work is scheduled to be finished by Homecoming in Oc- 
tober of 1983. Additional funds will be needed to complete items of sec- 
ond and third priority.

Report of the 
Diocesan Commission on Stewardship 

At the Diocesan Convention in 1982 a resolution was proposed and 
passed to make the ad hoc stewardship committee a full commission of 
the diocese. During the ensuing year, the commission has spent the bulk 
of its time on matters of study and development. Meeting monthly, the 
commission has been looking at the stewardship programs existent in 
other dioceses and has been making preparations for a strong steward- 
ship emphasis in our diocese in 1983. 

The commission operates with several basic assumptions as a founda- 
tion for its work: 

—That stewardship is indeed the work of the church. 

—That the use of our resources, including our income, is an 
indicator of our commitment to Christ and His Church. 

—Money is sacramental; how we use it is an outward and vis- 
ible sign of more inward convictions and motivations. 

—Our Lord has asked us to love in deed as well as in word 
and stewardship is the currency of our commitment to Christ. 

—Our stewardship is as much a matter of our spiritual lives as 
it is a matter of money. 

—Stewardship is not synonymous with fund-raising. While 
"raising dollars" for the church budget is undeniably an as- 
pect of stewardship, the matter of stewardship is much more 
comprehensive, including such other matters as the steward- 
ship of one's time, talents, physical and emotional health, con- 
cern for creation, etc. 

—The deepest sense of stewardship is exclusive of church 
budgets. That is, we give not to a budget but give out of our 
commitment to Christ and our stewardship then is seen as 



Convention Reports 133 



something we do not for the church but for ourselves to 
strengthen our faith. 

—Stewardship of finances needs to be seen as an initial con- 
sideration, not a leftover. 

—A standard of giving is essential, not for the inducement of 
guilt or other bad feelings, but as a systematic motivator for 
progress in our personal stewardship development. In this re- 
gard the commission heartily endorses the action taken by the 
General Convention 1982 which endorsed the Biblical tithe, 
ten percent, as the standard of giving for Episcopalians. 

As the Stewardship Commission developed its plans for the upcoming 
years, the necessity of receiving information from the congregations of 
the diocese appeared mandatory. A questionnaire has therefore been pre- 
pared and mailed to each congregation requesting certain pertinent infor- 
mation regarding the state of stewardship in those congregations as well 
as to ascertain the stewardship needs of each congregation. The commis- 
sion hopes that those receiving these questionnaires will do their utmost 
to see that they are returned. The information gathered will have a signi- 
ficant effect on the plans and directions in which the commission moves 
in the next couple of years. 

For the year 1983, the Stewardship Commission plans to divide itself 
into resource teams. These teams will be available to congregations for 
consultation and to assist them in determining an approach to steward- 
ship development among their members. It is expected that these teams 
will be in place by late spring, 1983. While the commission does not feel 
at this time the need for a single "diocesan plan" due to the uniqueness of 
individual situations, the resource teams will be in a position to assist 
each congregation in determining an approach to stewardship which 
would mesh with its unique characteristics. Congregations wishing to 
avail themselves of these resource teams should contact the Chairman of 
the Stewardship Commission with their requests. 

A major stewardship conference for the diocese is planned for April 21 
and 22 of 1983. The commission feels strongly that the atmosphere for 
stewardship in the diocese needs to be stimulated. It further feels that di- 
ocesan and congregational leaders must make a commitment to better 
stewardship before that is to take place in any pervasive manner. The 
commission hopes this conference will move us in that direction. The 
best person the commission could find has been secured as the keynoter 
of the conference, The Rev. Thomas H. Carson, Jr., Executive for Stew- 



134 Diocese of North Carolina 



ardship for the Executive Council of the National Church. Dr. Carson 
served in parish ministry for many years before taking this staff position 
and has distinguished himself as a person with excellent stewardship 
skills and interests. He is also the chief architect of the tithing resolution 
which was presented at the General Convention in 1982. 

The Stewardship Conference will be open to all members of the dio- 
cese but it is particularly hoped that it will be attended by the bishops, 
members of the Diocesan Executive Council, the clergy and stewardship 
personnel within each congregation. Further information on this confer- 
ence will be forthcoming. 

In the course of its work this past year the commission realized the im- 
portance of extra-budgetary giving as a dimension of a person's financial 
planning and therefore the stewardship of his or her financial resources. 
Each year significant amounts of financial resources are bequested to 
hospitals, universities and other organizations. Heretofore, the church 
has not been prepared in any deliberate or systematic way to assist per- 
sons who might want to consider making gifts to the church in a like 
manner. 

The commission has therefore planned a special one-day conference to 
be held on September 24, 1983 at the Browns Summit Conference Center 
regarding deferred and extra-budgetary giving. This conference is to be 
led by Mr. Richard M. Lamport, Jr., Capital Funding Officer for the Exec- 
utive Council. Mr. Lamport is responsible for the planned giving test now 
being conducted in the Dioceses of Western Massachusetts, Pennsyl- 
vania and Central Pennsylvania. Mr. Lamport is conducting these tests 
on behalf of the national church in order to determine the best method of 
developing extra-budgetary gifts within the church. Additional informa- 
tion on the deferred giving conference will also be forthcoming. 

The matter of deferred and extra-budgetary giving is a specialized area 
which requires the expertise of those in such fields as banking, law and 
development who would be familiar with such things as wills, bequests, 
annuities, etc. The commission, realizing its lack of knowledge in this 
area, has gone outside of itself and formed a subcommittee on planned 
giving. This area will therefore fall under the purview of the commission 
which hopes to present to the diocese some substantial direction in extra- 
budgetary and deferred giving. 

The commission sees as its responsibility two major emphases: first, to 
address the spiritual essence that motivates and entails good steward- 



Convention Reports 135 



ship— Biblical and traditional; and secondly, to develop a structural 
framework in which these matters might be conveyed and ultimately re- 
sult in practical demonstrated results— that the members of the diocese 
become increasingly better stewards. The commission realizes that this 
work must be an ongoing and patient task. We feel that we have made a 
good beginning over the past year and hope that the programs and ac- 
tivities planned for 1983 will carry us further along that course.

Report of the 
Christian Social Ministries Committee 

Christian Social Ministries continues its work among the migrant popu- 
lation. We have opened a second clothing shelter and doubled the num- 
ber of workers from last year. Now there are some 75 to 80 workers in- 
volved, representing 15 parishes in both the Diocese of East Carolina and 
our own. In addition, the Diocese of East Carolina and the Department of 
Christian Social Ministries of this diocese have together hired a migrant 
outreach worker in the person of Neil Boisen, who is fluent in Creole. 

Share A Home continues to be an exciting concept and is now on the 
verge of opening in Burlington and making a beginning in Winston- 
Salem. 

High unemployment has caused many problems over our country, but 
it is especially amplified in the cities. One response in Wake County has 
been an Episcopal-formed group known as FIGS which basically began 
as a funding agency to provide medicine for elderly persons who have 
had their monthly prescriptions reduced due to the cutbacks. FIGS also is 
looking at other needs in Wake County, including the possible starting of 
a free clinic. FIGS is chaired by Mr. Ward Purrington. 

The Rev. Arthur Kortheuer, sponsored by CSM, heads up a Peace 
Movement especially interested in disarmament, nuclear freeze, and our 
country's involvement in Central America. 

The Rev. Henry Atkins continues to chair the Diocesan Urban Task 
Force, offering advice and consultation throughout the diocese as well as 
sponsoring the second Diocesan Task Force Conference, October 29-30, 
1982. 



136 Diocese of North Carolina 



The number of parishes accepting an amount equal to five percent of 
their annual budget to help poor people continues to increase. 

The CSM office is especially interested in dispute settlement— a pro- 
gram whereby trained volunteers help settle grievances between citizens 
in lieu of litigation. This program helps reduce the court load and pro- 
vides for those who cannot afford an attorney and court costs. 

The CSM office has been actively involved with the Aging Task Force, 
chaired by the Rev. Philip Brown. This Task Force put on a very effective 
models workshop for parishes and has plans for a legislative seminar in 
Washington, D.C. in 1983. 

CSM is happy to announce the Diocesan Commission on Alcoholism, 
chaired by Mrs. Irma Hoffman, will receive its own budget in 1983. 

CSM continues to support the Diocesan Hunger Commission, chaired 
by Mrs. Nancy Craig, actively involved in establishing a network 
throughout the diocese to sensitize and educate people to the many issues 
relating to why some people continue to be hungry. 

The interest in soup kitchens continues to grow. St. Timothy's Wilson 
has just completed an intensive investigation and planning that will result 
in the opening of their soup kitchen in early 1983. In addition, the com- 
bined Episcopal churches in Greensboro have agreed to organize and 
fund a soup kitchen there which will eventually be turned over to the 
Greensboro Urban Ministry. 

The Diocesan Parish Grant Committee, chaired by Mr. Alexander Ran- 
kin III, still plays a vital role in providing start-up monies for virtually all 
outreach projects begun within our diocese. Enough cannot be said for 
this innovative fund which has become a sought-after model for other 
dioceses. 

I continue to love and be fascinated by my work, and am especially fill- 
ed with joy at the increasing number of people who are more and more 
understanding the difference between objects of ministry and subjects of 
ministry!

Report of the North 
Carolina Episcopal Church Foundation 

The North Carolina Episcopal Church Foundation, Inc. was established 
in 1955 for the purpose of aiding in the expansion of the Church in the 
Diocese. Funds are available to parishes and missions and to other insti- 
tutions owned by the Diocese for: erection of buildings, acquisitions of 
buildings and property, and repairs, renovations and improvements to 
existing facilities. Low interest rate loans are available to parishes and 
missions up to a maximum of $60,000, repayable in ten years. For whol- 
ly-owned Diocesan institutions the maximum limit of loans is $200,000. 
Grants are also available on a limited basis, up to a maximum of $5,000 
for the same purposes. All applications are reviewed on an individual 
basis and decisions based on the needs of the applicant and funds 
available. Currently, the interest rate for parishes and institutions is six 
percent and for missions, five percent.

Report of the Investment Committee 

The trust funds of the Diocese, of which there are a large number, are 
managed in a pooled fund by the Trust Department of North Carolina 
National Bank which has been the investment advisor and manager for a 
number of years. The Diocese Investment Committee has instructed our 
investment manager to invest these funds to produce a minimum income 
return of 5% and, over and above that, to achieve the maximum total re- 
turn (current yield plus capital appreciation or depreciation) consistent 
with our income objectives and conservative fiduciary policies. The pool 
fund consists of both common stocks for capital appreciation and income 
growth and long-term bonds or short-term fixed income investments de- 
signed to produce higher returns. 

Listed below is a comparison of the value and income on each share of 
the Diocesan Common Trust Account for the last five years as of 
September 30:

In last year's report we pointed out the fact that the income return for 
the twelve months ending September 30, 1982 as well as the yield per 
share might well decline in view of the sharp decline in interest rates. 
Not only did interest rates decline in the fourth quarter of last year, but 
have been in a general decline through the first three quarters of 1982. As 
a result, the net income per share declined $.06 versus last year's net in- 
come per share. The income yield per share also declined but the market 
value per share increased nicely over last year's market value and thus 
the ending market value per share divided into the income earned for the 
year leads to a lower income yield per share. 

Our investment manager reports to us on a calendar-year basis the 
time- weighted rate of return for the pooled fund. As of December, 1981 
the time-weighted rate of return compounded annually for the past five

years amounted to 7.2%. This return compares very favorably with the 
market indices and approximately matches the median manager in the 
A.G. Becker Universe of some 3,500 tax-free accounts as well as exceed- 
ing the median Endowment and Foundation Index compiled by Colonial 
Consulting Company. 

As of September 30, 1982 the funds supervised by the Investment Com- 



mittee were invested as follows:

The Trustees of the Diocese, acting with the consent of the Bishop, au- 
thorized the Vestry of the Church of the Advent, Enfield to remove the 
stained-glass windows from St. Clement's, Ringwood for installation at

cure the vacant window openings at St. Clement's and that the Church of 
the Advent defray all the expenses involved with this project. 

January 6, 1982 

The Trustees of the Diocese advised the Bishop that they would not in- 
terpose any objection to executing a deed conveying title to property ad- 
joining the Diocesan House in the event a valid use for the property was 
determined, subject to the consent of the Bishop acting with the advice of 
the Standing Committee. 



140 Diocese of North Carolina 



The Trustees adopted a resolution advising the Investment Committee 
that the Trustees would have no objection to a loan of accumulated trust 
fund income, not immediately needed for disbursement in accordance 
with the trust, to the Diocese to refinance the Conference Center con- 
struction loan. 

The Trustees directed Mr. Schenck to determine whether the congrega- 
tion of St. James', Pittsboro had merged with St. Bartholomew's, Pitts- 
boro. If such merger had taken place, the Trustees directed that the in- 
come from the Butler Trust be paid to the St. Bartholomew's congrega- 
tion. If the merger had not taken place, the trust assets are to be turned 
over to the North Carolina Episcopal Church Foundation, Inc. 

The Trustees directed the Treasurer of the Diocese to transfer funds 
held for the benefit of a former congregation in Franklinton to the Episco- 
pal Church Foundation. All funds turned over to the Episcopal Church 
Foundation are to be returned to the Trustees of the Diocese for the bene- 
fit of missions or parishes hereafter organized in the communities for 
which the funds were originally held. 

The Trustees directed that the assets of Christ Church, Milton, consist- 
ing of accumulated principal and income amounting to approximately 
$10,000 be turned over to the Episcopal Church Foundation in conformi- 
ty with the Canons of the Diocese. The Trustees also directed that the 
proceeds derived from the sale of a farm, when sold, held for the benefit 
of Christ Church, Milton be turned over to the Episcopal Church Founda- 
tion. 

June 24, 1982 

The Trustees of the Diocese requested Mr. Michael Schenck to advise 
the attorneys for Hadley Peoples Manufacturing Company that the 
Trustees of the Diocese would recommend the sale of the lot formerly oc- 
cupied by St. Mark's, Siler City to Hadley Peoples Manufacturing Com- 
pany for its appraised value. 

September 16, 1982 

The Trustees of the Diocese, with the consent of the Bishop, leased the 
parish house and playground area of All Saints Church, Warrenton, to 
the Mental Health Program of Vance, Warren, Granville and Franklin 
Counties for a term beginning July 1, 1982 and ending June 30, 1983 for 
$200 per month to defray the cost to the mission of the lessee's operation 
and $200 per month in rent.

November 17, 1982 

The Trustees of the Diocese received the sum of $1,000 from an anony- 
mous donor to establish a "Mary Harris-Scott Evans Scholarship Fund." 
The annual income from this fund is to be paid to the Treasurer of the 
Diocesan Episcopal Church Women each September to be used by them 
to reduce the costs (across the board) of Episcopal Church Women's con- 
ferences at the Episcopal Conference Center at Browns Summit, with 
preference being given to the Episcopal Church Women seminar which 
is currently held each autumn. 

December 2, 1982 

The Trustees executed a deed conveying a lot in Siler City known as a 
part of Lot 2, Hadley Peoples Manufacturing Company subdivision, for- 
merly occupied by St. Mark's Church, to Brewer Insurance and Realty 
Company for the sum of $5,000. 

The Trustees approved the form of an agreement with the North Caro- 
lina National Bank naming the bank as management agent under the di- 
rection of the Diocesan Investment Committee to administer the Dioce- 
san trusts.

Report of the Chancellor of the Diocese 

As Chancellor, I have taken the following actions and given an opinion 
of the following matters: 

I advised Edward F. Yarbrough, Esq., a member of the Vestry of St. 
Paul's Church, Louisburg, with copies to the Rt. Rev. Thomas A. Fraser, 
the Rt. Rev. Robert W. Estill, and the Rev. George A. Magoon, that a 
"communicant in good standing" means "all baptized persons, who have 
been confirmed by a Bishop of the Episcopal Church and who shall have 
received holy communion at least thrice during the next then preceding 
twelve-month period." 

I advised the President of the Standing Committee that a candidate for 
ordination to Holy Orders must be recommended for ordination to the 
Bishop by the Standing Committee of the Diocese. For the Standing Com- 
mittee of the Diocese to make the recommendation to the Bishop, the 
candidate must lay before the Standing Committee, among other require- 
ments: 

(a) A certificate from a presbyter "known to the ecclesiastical authori- 
ty" of the Episcopal Church certifying that the candidate is "well quali- 
fied to minister in the office of Deacon." 



(b) A certificate from the minister and the Vestry of the parish of 
which the candidate is a member concerning the character of his life for 
the past three years and his loyalty to the doctrines of the Episcopal 
Church. 



144 Diocese of North Carolina 



(c) That the Canon requires different presbyters to sign the certificates 
required in (a) and (b). 

I advised Pierce Strange and Company, auditors for the Diocese of 
North Carolina, that I have not been engaged to give substantive atten- 
tion to, or represent the Diocese in connection with loss contingencies as- 
serted against the Diocese. 

I advised the Bishop of the Diocese that income from the trust estab- 
lished under the will of Louis Alston is required to be used "for theologi- 
cal education, religious work among college students, and to supplement 
the salary of lower paid clergy." Under the restrictions, I advised the 
Bishop that an investment in the Diocesan Conference Center would not 
be a compliance with the terms of the trust. 

I gave an opinion that Title I, Canon 63, Section 3 provides "unless in 
conflict with the laws as aforesaid [that is, state law], the Rector, when 
present, shall preside at all meetings of the Vestry." Article 10, Section 2 
of the Constitution of the Diocese of North Carolina provides that "the 
Rector is recognized, by virtue of his office, as being entitled to call meet- 
ings of the Vestry or congregation and, when present, to preside at the 
same, and, in case of a tie, to cast the deciding vote." Canon 21, Section 5 
provides "should the Rector refuse to call a meeting of the Vestry, and in 
the opinion of the wardens or majority of the Vestry, such meeting would 
be of importance, the wardens or any three members of the Vestry may 
call a Vestry meeting. In such case, however, the Rector shall be notified 
of the time and place of the called meeting of the Vestry." The Rector of a 
parish must be given notice of the time and place of a meeting of the 
Vestry and he is entitled to be present and to preside at the meeting. 

I received a notice of a proposed conference of the Chancellors of the 
Dioceses in this province to be held November 5-7, 1982 at the Dubose 
Conference Center at Monteagle, Tennessee. 

I advised the Business Administrator of the Diocese that the Trustees of 
the trust established under the will of Elsie B. Krebs should account an- 
nually to the Diocese of North Carolina and to the Penick Retirement 
Home as beneficiaries of the Kreb trust. 

In response to a request from Dr. Sarah N. Lemmon, I advised Dr. 
Lemmon that the inclusion of property belonging to the Diocese of North 
Carolina and of any of its parishes or missions in an historical district or 
as an historical structure represents an encumbrance on the property so 



Convention Reports 145 



included because the inclusion limits the use and disposition of the prop- 
erty. Therefore, the voluntary inclusion of church property in an histori- 
cal district or as an historical building requires the consent of the Bishop 
acting with the advice of the Standing Committee. However, the inclu- 
sion of church property in such a district by a city or other governmental 
authority is not void or voidable since the church cannot control lawful 
actions of governmental units. 

I attended a meeting with Bishop Fraser, Mr. Albert W. Kennon, and 
the Rev. Joshua Mackenzie, Rector of St. Stephen's Church, Durham at a 
conference concerning an amendment of the trust established primarily 
for the upkeep of St. Stephen's church building, the support of the choir, 
and the salary of the rector and other priests of the parish. 

After conferring with Bishop Estill, I wrote Mrs. Rosa Langston, Kit- 
trell, North Carolina, that vacation by her of the Rectory in Kittrell is not 
required at this particular time. After further conferences with Bishop 
Fraser and Bishop Estill, and letters exchanged with A. A. Zollicoffer, Esq. 
of Henderson, I prepared a lease from the Trustees of the Diocese to Mrs. 
Rosa Langston for a term of six months of the Rectory at Kittrell. 
However, prior to signature, Mrs. Langston found other quarters 
available and moved from the Kittrell Rectory. 

I advised Mr. Ralph D. Stout, Jr., Stewardship and Finance Committee, 
All Saints Episcopal Church, Greensboro, North Carolina, that a propos- 
ed resolution (revised July 18, 1982) establishing an endowment from the 
bequest of Mrs. Alice Walker Dillard is within the rights granted the Ves- 
try in Mrs. Dillard's will. Under the terms of the will, the fund is "to be 
used to further the general purposes of said church as the Vestry of the 
church may determine." Under that authority, the Vestry is authorized 
to establish an endowment fund with the proceeds of that bequest. 

I prepared a lease from the Trustees of the Diocese to the Mental 
Health Program of Vance, Warren, Granville and Franklin Counties for a 
one-year term covering the playground and the parish hall of All Saints 
Church, Warrenton. 

I prepared a deed conveying a part of Lot 2, Section 1, Hadley-Peoples 
Manufacturing Company, Siler City, Chatham County, to Brewer Realty 
and Insurance Company.

Report of the Church Pension Fund 

Based on annual benefits being paid as of August 1, 1982, the annual 
benefits being paid by the Church Pension Fund on a church-wide basis 
during 1982 are as follows: 

Number of Amount of 

Beneficiaries Annual Benefit 

Retired clergy 2,246 $12,070,626 

Disabled clergy 307 1,535,330 

Surviving spouses 1,801 5,498,891 

Children 290 195,934 

TOTALS 4,644 $19,300,781 

Compared to the benefit amounts that were being paid on August 1, 
1981, the amounts shown above reflect a 13.8% increase. Grants in force 
during 1982 for the Diocese tf North Carolina as reported by the Church 
Pension Fund are as follows: 

Number of Amount of 

Beneficiaries Annual Benefit 

Retired Clergy 17 $ 92,069 

Surviving Spouses 27 86,855 

Children 6 3,455 

TOTALS 50 $182,379 

The Fund's two insurance companies enjoyed an excellent year. 
Church Life Insurance Corporation, administrator of the church's medi- 
cal health plan, undertook in 1982 to tailor coverages to fit the needs of 
specific dioceses and, in many cases, added a special prescription drug 
program that is both money-saving and convenient. The Church In- 
surance Company continued to expand its services and began the im- 
plementation of new comprehensive policy forms which increase 
coverages available and provide greater options to its insureds. The two 
insurance companies again paid sizable dividends to the Fund, an impor- 
tant source of the revenue from which benefits are paid to pensioners. 

The Church Hymnal Corporation continued its work on the prepara- 
tion of a new edition of The Hymnal and a new prayer book for the sight- 



Convention Reports 147 



impaired and those with arthritic and other joint diseases. It has also 
made progress in its plan to publish the French edition of The Book of 
Common Prayer. 

H. Gilliam Nicholson 



Report of the Communications Officer 

As in past years, production of The Communicant and the Diocesan 
Journal constituted the major work of the Communications Office in 
1982. The decision to include the Diocesan Constitution and Canons 
as an appendix to the 1982 Journal made an already ambitious project 
even more complex, and added significantly to the work load of the office 
staff throughout the spring. Yet the additional 55 pages of highly tech- 
nical material did not delay the production schedule, and permitted pub- 
lication of a combined volume at substantial savings to the Diocese in 
printing and distribution costs. In addition, the full, updated text of both 
the Constitution and the Canons is now stored on magnetic disks mak- 
ing future revisions significantly cheaper and quicker. The current ar- 
rangement enables the diocese to enjoy convenient access to current, up- 
dated versions of both Constitution and Canons without incurring addi- 
tional distribution and production costs. 

Publication of The Communicant was complicated this year by an un- 
expected and drastic increase in postal costs brought about as a direct re- 
sult of the Reagan administration's efforts to cut non-defense items in the 
federal budget. The monthly postal bill for The Communicant jumped 
114% in January, to $960.42 from its December total of $448. The result- 
ing budget crunch forced curtailment of the normal 10-issue publishing 
schedule, and required the publication of combined issues in Febru- 
ary/March and May /June, for a yearly total of eight. While the extent of 
future rate increases is uncertain at present, costs are expected to con- 
tinue to rise, making it necessary to reduce our 1983 publishing schedule 
to nine issues through the publication of a combined issue for Febru- 
ary/March. 

The Communicant continues to enjoy a reputation for excellence 
among religious publications. For the third year in a row, the paper was 
cited for general excellence in religion journalism by the Associated 
Church Press, and won four additional citations for feature writing, read- 
er response, newspaper design and graphics. In citing The Communicant 



148 Diocese of North Carolina 



for general excellence, the panel of three judges said "this outstanding 
diocesan newspaper offers effective writing, fine photo stories, excellent 
graphics and a good use of type masses and white space." Judges singled 
out the paper's "vigorous and lively reader response" for particular 
praise, complementing the paper for its skill in communicating to its 
readers the message "See how much we appreciate and respect what you 
say." 

In addition to these regularly scheduled projects, the in-house produc- 
tion facilities also permitted the production of brochures, leaflets and 
other publications at considerable savings to various committees and or- 
ganizations of the Diocese, including the Center for Continuing Educa- 
tion, the Commission on Liturgy and Worship, the Diocesan Youth 
Commission, the Education and Training Committee, the Diocesan 
Business Office and the Episcopal Conference Center. 

Christopher Walters-Bugbee

March 30, 1982 at Raleigh 

Gave its consent for the Diocese of Texas to elect a Bishop Suffragan by 
reason of the extent of Diocesan work. 

Consented and advised the Bishop to give his written consent for St. 
Thomas' Church, Reidsville, to sell nine lots in an undeveloped subdivi- 
sion in Rockingham County for not less than $5,400 less usual expenses 
of sale and real estate commissions. 

Noted its opinion that it has a responsibility for all canonically resident 
clergymen in non -ecclesiastical employment in this Diocese and reaf- 
firmed its position that arrangements should be made for all such persons 
to exercise their sacramental functions peculiar to the ordained ministry 
under the supervision of the Bishop, the Bishop Coadjutor or their desig- 
nee.

Report of the Historiographer 

My work as Historiographer for the past year has consisted chiefly in 
answering letters requesting information on the history of this Diocese 
and its several parishes. Many of these letters required considerable pri- 
mary research, such as a request for facts about the career of James H. 
Otey in North Carolina, who later became Bishop of Tennessee. A manu- 
script submitted to the Historical Magazine of the Episcopal Church has 
been read and criticized. The manuscript is of particular interest to North 
Carolina churchmen since it relates to the Rt. Rev. Leonidas Polk, Bishop 
of Louisiana, a native of this state.

Report of the Board of 
Directors of the Conference Center 

The Conference Center has been operating now for over 18 months, 
and its use has grown continuously throughout the period. 

For the year 1982, there have been some 45 diocesan events, including 
clergy conferences, diocesan committees, commissions, and task 
forces— Cursillo, among others. 

This past year also saw 51 different parish events from 30 parishes 
around the diocese: vestry meetings, picnics, staff retreats, parish week- 
ends, etc. 

Twenty-one conferences were held by other churches and denomina- 
tions: Baptist, Congregational United Church of Christ, Roman Catholic, 
Presbyterian, and Lutheran. 

Also on the Center's calendar were 45 conferences by outside 
groups: state, county, and city governments; public and private schools 
and colleges; private industry; hospitals; and various other non-profit or- 
ganizations. 

For comparable periods (May through December) in 1981 and 1982, 
there has been an increase of 26% in bed nights and of 46% in the num- 
ber of meals served. 

We are pleased by this progress and its enthusiastic use throughout the 
diocese. There is a gradual build-up in the occupancy rate of the over- 
night facilities. 

As a new facility , The Conference Center still has many needs to serve 
adequately the people of the diocese. The Buildings, Grounds, and Fur- 
nishings Committee (Rose Flannagan, Chairman) and the Long Range 
Planning Committee (The Rev. Harrison T. Simons, Chairman) have pre- 
pared lists of recommended improvements and additions— from a float 
for the swimming area in the lake, to a dormitory- style building for 
youth. The Board urges the parishes to include The Conference Center in 
their annual budgets to assist in meeting these needs. 

This past year saw Michael Schenck, III acting as interim director after 
the resignation in May of the Center's first director, John Crosby, and 



Convention Reports 157 



while the Search Committee sought a replacement. In September the 
Board accepted the recommendation of the Search Committee and 
employed Joseph B. (Dick) Hord, Jr. as Executive Director, effective Oc- 
tober 1, 1982. 

Dick, his wife, Lynda, and their three children are moving to Greens- 
boro from Charlotte, where he was formerly the Director of Group 
Homes, Episcopal Child Care Serices. He is a communicant of St. John's 
in Charlotte and a graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill. 

The other fine members of the staff— Betty Brown, Phil Whitacre, and 
Bob Nordbruch— are continuing their excellent work at The Conference 
Center. 

The progress of the Dicoesan Campaign is good, with payments on the 
pledges coming in well, and the Diocesan Council is hopeful of being able 
to retire the remaining indebtedness on the Center by the end of 1982. 

The Board of Directors is thankful for the cooperation and help it has 
received from so many segments of the diocese and from the competent 
staff at the Center.

Report of the Episcopal Child Care Services 

Nineteen hundred eighty-two was a year of many blessings for Thomp- 
son-Episcopal Child Care Services, but the gift of our new chapel had 
special significance. The Chapel of the Holy Family was consecrated in 
May. Children on the Charlotte campus soon claimed it as their own and 
often refer to it now as "our chapel." This handsome but simple edifice 
daily reminds us of our mission to serve God's troubled children. To- 
gether with the warmth of our chaplain's ministry, we have been spiritu- 
ally sustained this year. 

The past year was a time when public policies concerning children 
were undergoing major changes. Fortunately another blessing for us was 
the outpouring of love and support from our churches and friends so that 
federal budget reductions were cushioned. Also, with the aid of dedicat- 
ed board and staff members, we reduced costs wherever possible. Job de- 
scriptions blurred as social workers, child care professionals and admin- 



158 Diocese of North Carolina 



istrative personnel together took on projects such as painting cottages. A 
new spirit of cooperation was felt during a period of adversity. 

With our budget and program somewhat stabilized we begin 1983 with 
a sense of new mission. We realize that many children with special needs 
are not receiving help. Because of 1982's call for budget reductions, we 
had to close one of the cottages in Charlotte. This cottage is being readied 
for reopening in the spring of 1983 with a focus on preparing children 
without families for adoptive placements. Typically these children, ages 
5-12, have experienced many losses and changes during their short lives. 
Such children often need a period of special care to heal their troubled 
memories and to realistically shape their dreams for a new life and new 
family identity. While preparing older children for adoption is not a new 
role for Thompson, designating a cottage for this specific challenge af- 
fords many opportunities. 

A year of planning and beginnings is foreseen for 1983. Our Executive 
Committee and Board has asked staff committees to investigate the feasi- 
bility of weekend and day-long care for children. The basic philosophy 
would be to provide supplemental care for children with special needs, 
but these children would continue living at home with their families. 
Mildly retarded children are being given special consideration. Weekend 
care could be made available to them on a portion of our farm property 
adjoining the Charlotte campus. Such a plan would offer unique recrea- 
tional and socialization experiences as they would also utilize our chapel, 
gymnasium and enclosed swimming pool. It is believed that such respite 
care would greatly assist the children's families as well. Children with 
other special needs are also being considered for different types of sup- 
plemental care. Our research is incomplete, but we anticipate presenting 
our recommendations to the Board and Executive Committee during 
1983. 

No one can with accuracy forecast the future, but with God's guidance 
we must plan ahead. Thompson Orphanage was begun nearly 100 years 
ago, and today its mission of serving children remains an exciting chal- 
lenge. With the help of our friends in the Diocese of North Carolina, 
many new opportunities await us!

* Benevolent Assistance included those residents who lacked the 
financial resources to pay for the customary charges for care. 

The year 1982 was a year of growth in number, growth in spiritual 
depth, growth in fiscal responsibility, growth in resident participation, 
and growth in future possibilities. Such an experience for the Penick 
Home during its 18th year of operation has strengthened its influence in 
the field of gerontology, as a mission of the Episcopal Church in the Dio- 
cese of North Carolina. A look at the positive growth of the Home dem- 
onstrates a constructive approach to the increasing needs of older citizens 
in our society. 

1) Growth in number, from 127 to 134, came about because of the 
opening of four new Weymouth Apartments. Eight additional apart- 
ments will be opened in the Spring of 1983. The program is being accom- 
plished without incurring a debt while establishing future sources of 
income-producing units which will enhance the financial stability of the 
Home. 

2) Growth in spiritual depth has been realized through the staff addi- 
tion of our full-time Chaplain, the Reverend Terry Taylor. His spiritual 
leadership has brought pastoral oversight to residents, staff, and families 
alike. Mr. Taylor's depth of commitment enhances the Home's develop- 
ing mission to restore, improve, or at least maintain each resident's per- 
sonhood. New and innovative program ministries with residents and 
families are being initiated under his leadership. In addition, Mr. Taylor 
is assisting the Executive Director in presenting programs on the Home in 
the local parishes. 

3) Growth in fiscal responsibility involved a total review of the 
Home's fees and charges as a means of being more in line with today's 
costs. The operational rates have increased by an average of 5 percent 
due to careful surveillance by the Administator and the Board of Direc- 
tors. One hundred percent of the parishes', individuals', and foundations' 
designated contributions and grants are used for direct resident support 
services and not for administrative overhead. 

4) The Home has re-evaluated its waiting list in light of the increasing 
demand for services. A new policy was implemented after careful re- 
search, which requires all applicants to make a $500.00 application dona- 
tion, if the person has the financial resources. As a result, the up-to-date 
list of bona fide future residents allows the Home to plan more adequate- 
ly in order to meet their needs on a timely basis. 



Convention Reports 161 



5) The program ministry of the Home accepts the challenges of the 
residents and families to be innovative in a wholesome, creative fashion. 
The individual residents become paramount in our planning and pro- 
gramming, to say, "you are important, not only to God, but to all involv- 
ed in our unique ministry." 

6) The future growth of the Home takes a four-prong approach: 

a) Building of addition apartments on a demand basis on ex- 
isting land in Southern Pines. 

b) Developing plans for a free-standing skilled nursing center 
in Southern Pines with appropriate ancillary services, 
therapies and out-patient programs for older citizens. 

c) Developing plans for additional residential units and cen- 
tral dining on adjacent land purchased this summer in 
Southern Pines. 

d) Exploring the possibility of an addition retirement center 
in another city within the Diocese, based upon need, financial 
feasibility, local interest, and support. 

The development of these future possibilities is at the center of the 
Board of Directors' studies and plans for the future. Continued input and 
support from parishes and communicants of the Diocese will greatly en- 
hance the Home's effectiveness in meeting the needs of its older adults. 

The residents, staff and Board of Directors are jointly indebted to the 
communicants of the Diocese for their support through gifts, thoughts, 
prayers, and talents. Such support has encouraged us in our ministry and 
blessed the dignity of maturing people in our society.

Report of Kanuga Conferences 

Kanuga is an Episcopal center in the Blue Ridge Mountains, offering 
year-round programs for inspiration, relaxation, and education. Kanuga 
provides an experience in Christian community living through which 
each of us can accept our responsibility for growth in Christian com- 
munity wherever we may be. 



162 Diocese of North Carolina 



The past year has brought significant growth— and a great loss— to 
Kanuga's ministry. There has been a deepening and broadening of ser- 
vice to the Church through hosting and sponsoring programs. Last year, 
12,696 guests were hosted for a total of 45,907 "guest days" (counting 
one guest day for each night spent here). This is an increase of 5.6% over 
the previous year. 

In 1982 Kanuga sponsored 16 conferences, 10 weeks of summer camp, 
six weeks of Guest Period and the autumn "See the Leaves" week. Forty- 
one parish programs were held here and 43 other groups conducted pro- 
grams at Kanuga throughout the year. 

In the past year there has also been the sudden loss of Edgar Hartley, 
Jr., Kanuga's Executive Director since 1963. Mr. Hartley died on May 13. 
Kanuga's development from a summertime operation into a year-round 
center known throughout the nation is his far-reaching legacy. 

At the request of the Board of Directors, I became Acting President and 
chief operating officer soon after Mr. Hartley's death. In December the 
Board selected a new President, Albert S. Gooch of Sewanee, Tennessee. 
I will continue to serve until Mr. Gooch comes to Kanuga in April after 
fulfilling his obligations as Director of Admissions at the University of the 
South. 

Another change in Kanuga's structure occurred in November when the 
Rev. G. LaRue Downing, Director of Program, accepted a call to become 
rector of the Church of the Good Shepherd in Augusta, Ga. Mr. Downing 
had been at Kanuga since April, 1980. For the time being, the position of 
Director of Program will not be filled. The Kanuga Program Coordinating 
Committee, which is responsible to the Board, will continue to develop 
programs. 

In 1983 Kanuga is sponsoring the following activities: 

Vestry Leadership Conference, Feb. 25-27 
Senior Young People's Conference (Senior YP), June 11-17 
Junior Young People's Conference (Junior YP), June 11-17 
Conference For Adults Who Work With Youth, June 11-17

Report of Saint Augustine's College 

Saint Augustine's College began its 1 16th academic year with an enroll- 
ment of 1,573. 

We have been moving in an orderly manner to reduce our enrollment 
from 1,650 to a more carefully selected full-time equivalent of about 
1,400 students, both academically better prepared as well as financially 
able to pay a larger share of the modest charges we make. 

We had the unhappy task of having to say to approximately 65 or more 
students who presented themselves for registration and who lacked a 
well-defined plan to meet their financial obligation that we simply could 
not allow them to register. It should be noted that nearly half of our stu- 
dents come from families with incomes of less than $12,000 annually. 
Most of their parents cannot afford to contribute much to the cost of their 
children's education. 

To help our students and to maintain an academically strong and viable 
institution, the College launched a $35 million development campaign in 
February, 1982. The Alumni of Saint Augustine's have committed them- 
selves to raising $2 million of this goal. Funds raised will be used to in- 
crease the endowment, provide scholarship aid, construction and renova- 
tion of buildings and program development. Your commitment to this 



164 Diocese of North Carolina 



campaign will insure that the College will be able to meet future de- 
mands with respect to attracting strong faculty members, gifted students 
and the implementation of viable programs that will equip matriculants 
with the skills and background that are required in a competitive society. 

We are pleased to announce that we closed our 16th consecutive year 
with a balanced budget. The success we have had with students, faculty 
and staff alike, we owe to the steadfast support and encouragement from 
the Diocese of North Carolina, individual parishes and friends along with 
those national, regional, state and local communities and many others 
who have seen fit to assist us. Therefore, the College will be depending 
increasingly upon the support from the parishes and organizations of the 
Diocese of North Carolina, in order for Saint Augustine's College to con- 
tinue to serve the young people of our state, nation and the world.

Report of St. Mary's College 

In its 141st year, St. Mary's College continues to work toward strength- 
ening our Episcopal faith, promoting student development and striving 
for financial stability. 

St. Mary's values its close association with the Diocese of North Caro- 
lina. The College was privileged to have The Right Reverend Thomas A. 
Fraser, Bishop, as its commencement speaker in May, 1982. Last January 
at the Diocesan convention, the Chorale and Ensemble proudly 
presented a special program of music. College marshals, flag bearers and 
crucifers have been honored by an invitation from The Right Reverend 
Robert W. Estill to assist at his Installation as Bishop. 

The College is operating at full boarding capacity and has a total enroll- 
ment of 503 students, 314 in the College and 187 in the high school. Geo- 
graphic and ethnic distribution continues strong with students from 24 
states and eight foreign countries. 

Educational opportunities in our liberal arts program continue to be 
outstanding. Thirty-three percent of the faculty have earned doctorates, 
with a significant faculty/student ratio of 1 to 13.6. St. Mary's now has a 
business administration program, with a curriculum designed to prepare 
students to compete successfully in the job market or to transfer to such 
programs at senior institutions.

St. Mary's is the only Episcopal women's college in the United States. 
Ties with the five Dioceses in North and South Carolina continue to pro- 
mote our religious uniqueness. Thirty-nine percent of our students are 
Episcopalians and about 240 of our young women live within the Diocese 
of North Carolina. Students participate weekly in two required chapel 
services led by the resident Chaplain, The Reverend Starke Dillard. In 
addition, religious study is required of all students. 

The College reached a new record in financial support of the operating 
budget in 1981-82, with $503,342 being received through gifts to the An- 
nual Fund. Contributing most to the increase over last year's $380,000 
was a highly successful Alumnae Annual Giving program, in which 
38.6% of the College's alumnae participated to place St. Mary's in the top 
1% of all two-year colleges in the United States in this category. 

With daily operating costs approaching $ 10,000 and tuition and fees ac- 
counting only for about 80% of this, the College must work diligently to 
balance its books. 

Support of the 1981-82 operating budget from parishes and ECW's in 
the five dioceses of North and South Carolina amounted to $29,918, 
about 6% of the College's operating gift income but less than 1% of the 
operating budget. We are pleased, however, to note an upswing in sus- 
tained church support of the operating budget. The additional need for 
endowed scholarship aid is of real concern in order for us to assist deserv- 
ing students with financial need to attend St. Mary's. 

Support from the Diocese of North Carolina is greatly appreciated by 
St. Mary's. In 1981-82, the Diocese, Diocesan Churchwomen, 11 parishes 
and 12 ECW groups contributed $39,893 to our work. Of this amount, 
$30,714 represented a Venture in Mission gift to the Diocese of North 
Carolina Scholarship Fund. Gifts to the College's $3,120,000 operating 
budget amounted to $9,064, with an additional $115 being received for 
endowment. We ask that all Episcopalians take a serious look at the im- 
pact St. Mary's has on our denomination and consider positive support of 
a unique church institution in their charitable planning.

Report of the Diocesan Trustees 
of the University of the South 

Robert M. Ayres, Jr., vice-chancellor and president of the University of 
the South, said this summer: "I am more optimistic than ever that this 
University can be a vital instrument of the Church. It is time that we take 
the offensive, dedicate ourselves to the mission laid down by the 
founders of this University and help broaden the mission of the Church." 

Unique in its Episcopal ownership, the University of the South at Se- 
wanee, Tennessee has made significant strides towards greater financial 
stability and better service to its Church family since Robert Ayres be- 
came vice-chancellor five years ago. Enrollment remains strong for the 
college of Arts and Sciences, which includes twenty-eight students from 
the Diocese of North Carolina. With the arrival this summer of a new 
Seminary dean, the Very Rev. John E. Booty, Mr. Ayres anticipates re- 
newed support for Sewanee and a growth in enrollment for the School of 
Theology. 

The leaders of this support for Sewanee must be the Episcopal 
clergymen and laypersons throughout the Southern dioceses. Twenty- 
five dioceses in the South elect members to Sewanee' s Board of Trustees. 
The trustees from North Carolina are Bishop Fraser, the Rev. William E. 
Pilcher, III, William A. Goodson, Jr., and John C. Maddocks. 

NEW SEMINARY DEAN 

The University was shocked last summer at the death of the Very Rev. 
Urban T. Holmes, III, who had been dean of the School of Theology for 
six years. The Rt. Rev. Girault M. Jones, former University chancellor 
and retired bishop of Louisiana, has served with distinction as interim 
dean. Dean Booty, whose election was announced at the April meeting of 
the Board of Trustees, has been a professor at the Episcopal Divinity 
School in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and is the author of numerous 
books and articles on church history, prayer, and spiritual life. 

COMINGS AND GOINGS 

During the 1982 commencement in May, the University awarded 250 
bachelor's degrees to graduates of the College. Thirty degrees were 
awarded to graduates of the School of Theology— twenty-one Masters of 
Divinity and Doctors of Ministry. 



Convention Reports 167 



The programs continue to grow at Bairnwick Center, the theological 
extension and continuing education center of the University. Education 
for Ministry, the popular lay extension program, has an enrollment of 
more than 4,000 persons in seventy-one dioceses or provinces in the 
United States and abroad. 

The University of the South is celebrating its 125th anniversary this 
year. The celebration reached a climax this fall during a week that in- 
cluded Homecoming, Founders' Day, and the DuBose Lectures. A prin- 
cipal speaker at that time was the Rev. David Tracy, the eminent Roman 
Catholic theologian. 

STUDENT AID CRISIS 

Financial aid funding, which began to be a critical problem more than a 
year ago, is more critical than ever and threatens to affect the quality of 
the University's student body. 

The warning was given in reports this spring to both the Board of Trus- 
tees and the Board of Regents by Barbara Hall, financial aid director. 

In a nutshell, the University is unable to meet by ordinary means the 
sharply increasing demand among its students for financial assistance. 
Sewanee students received $1,432,500 in financial aid this year, and even 
this fell far short of the need. 

According to Mrs. Hall, the basic reasons for the deepening crisis are 
the nation's economic woes and the reduction of federal and state fund- 
ing of financial aid programs. 

Faced with its own problems of rising costs, the University has increas- 
ed tuition and fees substantially (as have other private colleges and 
universities). College tuition, room, board, and fees for this fall are 
$8,150, an increase from $7,270 last year. The School of Theology's tui- 
tion and fees are $4,000, an increase from $3,730. 

Although the University in two years has increased its contributions to 
financial aid from $150,000 to $600,000 from the operating budget, 
demonstrated financial need continues to exceed available funds. 

The University has undertaken two other courses of action to meet the 
crisis. It has devised a financial aid rationing system. The allocation sys- 
tem combines three factors: demonstrated financial need, date of applica- 



168 Diocese of North Carolina 



tion, and academic promise and performance. Also under this system, all 
aided students (with the exception of Wilkins Scholars) are expected to 
carry an annual student loan of $2,500 or half of their financial aid, 
whichever is less. 

The long-term solution to this problem in the Seminary and the College 
of Arts and Sciences is increased endowment and increased diocesan sup- 
port. 

It has been one of the strengths of the University of the South that qua- 
lified students have not been deprived of a Sewanee education solely for 
financial reasons. The current crisis, therefore, is considered to be a ma- 
jor threat to the character and mission of the University. 

ACCOLADES 

Academically, Sewanee ranks among the finest colleges and univer- 
sities in the South. Most frequently cited are its production of graduate 
scholarship award winners, the high percentage of its students who enter 
graduate schools of their choice, and the significant number of leaders in 
the Church. 

In this regard, the brightest news in 1982 has been that three Sewanee 
athletes were awarded NCAA post-graduate scholarships, which is un- 
precedented for the NCAA program. Sewanee now ranks thirteenth in 
the nation in the production of NCAA scholar-athletes, just ahead of 
Princeton and Navy. 

All three scholar-athletes received $2,000 scholarships to study at a pro- 
fessional or graduate school of their choice, and coincidentally, all three 
young men plan to pursue medical degrees. Two will attend the Univer- 
sity of Florida in Gainesville, and one will attend the Medical College of 
Georgia. 

Another Sewanee student was honored this spring when President 
Ronald Reagan presented Timothy A. Walsh a Recording for the Blind 
Scholastic Achievement Award in White House ceremonies. Walsh was 
one of only three students in the nation to receive the award and a $1,000 
scholarship. Blind since the second grade, he used textbooks and materi- 
als taped by Recording for the Blind, a national voluntary organization. In 
addition to being a Wilkins Scholar, Walsh graduated in the top 20 per- 
cent of his class and was a member of the Order of Gownsmen. He re- 
ceived his B.A. degree in Russian and Soviet Studies.

CHURCH SUPPORT 

There are two church-related programs which encourage Episcopalians 
to invest in the University. Sewanee-in-the-Budget is the program of gen- 
eral support for the entire University which encourages parishes and dio- 
ceses to make annual grants. The second program is the Theological Edu- 
cation Sunday Offering, a nationwide annual offering from Episcopalians 
specifically in support of accredited seminaries. Sewanee-in-the-Budget is 
the major source of financial support for the University from the Epis- 
copal Church. 

Several years ago Sewanee's Board of Trustees passed a resolution urg- 
ing the owning parishes to give at least one dollar per communicant to 
the University of the South. Sewanee recognizes the parishes and dio- 
ceses that reach that standard by placing them on an honor roll. 

For the calendar year 1981, 260 churches have been designated Honor 
Roll Parishes and have received certificates of appreciation. The Honor 
Roll Parishes in the Diocese of North Carolina are: 

Good Shepherd in Asheboro 

Chapel of the Cross in Chapel Hill 

Christ and St. Martin's in Charlotte 

St. Alban's in Davidson 

Holy Trinity in Greensboro 

St. Mary's in High Point 

St. Stephen's in Oxford 

St. Michael's in Raleigh 

All Saints' in Roanoke Rapids 

St. Paul's in Salisbury 

St. Paul's in Winston-Salem 

Honor Roll Dioceses for 1981 are Alabama and Central Gulf Coast. 
Total gift income from the Diocese of North Carolina for the year was 
$32,132, compared with $3,407 the previous year.

Report of the Task Force on Aging 

The Task Force on Aging has become visible during 1982 through the 
sponsorship of the Workshop on Aging held on March 24-25 at the Con- 
ference Center. Representatives from local parishes gathered to share 
successful models of ministry with older adults in the community; to 
challenge the negative stereotypes about aging; to encourage the involve- 
ment of older adults in the planning process; to be inspired by Dr. Emma 
Lou Benignus' deep spiritual insight into the needs of older adults; and to 
be counselled by our senior pastor, Bishop Fraser, in the journey of faith. 

The basic models for ministry presented in the workshop were the 
Shepherd Center— Charlotte, St. Paul's— Winston-Salem, Share-A- 
Home— Albemarle, Nutrition Program— Wadesboro, Community Food 
Bank— Raleigh, Hospice— Winston-Salem, and Good Shepherd— Raleigh. 
In addition, a representative from the North Carolina Division on Aging 
described how their program resources and expertise could complement 
a local parish program with the aging. The evaluation by the participants 
was very positive with comments like— "Best workshop ever held at the 
Conference Center— Extremely useful and provided needed resources to 
go home and develop a ministry with older adults." 

The emphasis for 1983 will include a fact-finding trip to Washington, 
D.C. on February 7-9. This trip will be a cooperative venture with the Di- 
oceses of Western and Eastern North Carolina. The workshop will be led 
by the U. S. Senate and House Aging Committee staff, the Episcopal Liai- 



Convention Reports 171 



son person in Washington, and the Episcopal Society for Ministry on Ag- 
ing, Inc. A general mailing plus a convention display will provide de- 
tailed information on the workshop/bus trip to Washington. 

Finally, the Task Force on Aging will be sponsoring an enabling resolu- 
tion to establish a Commission on Aging in the Diocese of North Caro- 
lina, with members appointed annually at the Diocesan Convention. The 
Task Force Committee has been an ad hoc committee for the past three 
years and unanimously agrees that now is the time for this change. 

Aging is our future; behold the future now.

Report of the Committee 
on Structure and Organization 

PART A 
BACKGROUND OF THE REPORT 

Introduction 

Addressing the annual Convention of the Diocese in 1982, both Bishop 
Fraser and Bishop Estill referred to the Committee on Structure and Or- 
ganization and its work. Bishop Fraser explained its origin, saying: 

Early last spring as I studied the state of the Church in this 
Diocese, the addition of a Bishop Coadjutor, and the growth, 
change and challenges facing our Church, I sought out mem- 
bership for a committee to study the structure and organiza- 
tion of the Diocese. There had been such a committee when I 
was Bishop Coadjutor. It was one of the more helpful 
resources in preparing me for my work as Coadjutor and 
ultimately as the Diocesan. ... In its report to the [1962] Con- 
vention it "reviewed the nature of an Episcopal diocese and 
the historical evolution of organization in this Diocese." The 
committee "examined at some length the principal officers, 
organizations and agencies entrusted with major responsibili- 
ty for Diocesan functions. ..." The recommendation of this 
report substantially assisted me and the Diocese to function 
more effectively in the '60's and '70's and to further the work 
of the Church within our diocesan boundaries. 



172 Diocese of North Carolina 



Our committee, which had been organized in May 1981, reported its 
activities to the 1982 Convention, making clear that its approach was one 
of study, analysis and discussion. "It would be an error," we said, "to 
think our committee will seek to propose changes merely for the sake of 
innovation. . . . But we already know that there are areas that merit seri- 
ous study and possible proposals for change. To date, however, we have 
made no attempt to reach conclusions; our primary task is to understand 
what the Diocese now has. Only when we feel that our understanding is 
sound will we approach the task of making suggestions for change." 

The 166th Convention then adopted a resolution constituting the Com- 
mittee on Structure and Organization a committee of the Convention and 
directed it to report its findings to the 167th Convention in 1983. 
Paraphrasing Bishop Fraser, its tasks were to take a new look at the way 
the Diocese is organized to do its work and make needed proposals for 
change, to give the Bishop Coadjutor insight into how the Diocese is gov- 
erned and an opportunity to propose change on his own, and to draft and 
offer for Convention approval whatever constitutional and canonical 
amendments might be required to put committee proposals into effect. 
This three-part document constitutes the committee's report. 

The Work of the Committee 

At the outset we determined not to reiterate the analyses of our prede- 
cessor committee but to commend them to the Diocese for their wisdom 
and educational value. Against the background of that earlier study, we 
turned our attention to the fundamental agencies of diocesan govern- 
ment. 

The Convention 

Apart from the Episcopate, the center of authority and decision in the 
Diocese is the annual Convention in which the clergy and the lay repre- 
sentatives from parishes and missions legislate policy, adopt budgets and 
establish procedures. Thus, from the first, we focused on the Convention 
itself. Our examination showed that in its brief annual sessions delegates 
with little prior experience find it difficult to understand and take part in 
deliberations and decisions, and this led us to seek a means for maintain- 
ing a reasonable continuity in the Convention's lay membership some- 
what parallel to that achieved by the clergy. We found that persons who 
will attend a given session of the Convention are not chosen sufficiently 
early to enable them to be made aware of issues likely to be considered; 
thus, we attempted to provide for an earlier selection of lay delegates. 



Convention Reports 173 



We recommend that lay delegates be elected for three-year staggered 
terms and that alternates be elected for one-year terms; all would be 
elected in time to be certified to the Secretary of the Convention 110 days 
before the Convention opens, and the Secretary would publish and distri- 
bute the roster at least 90 days prior to the Convention. 

Responding to a clearly demonstrated interest among the congrega- 
tions, we ask that the Convention expand the clerical membership of that 
body to include each member of the clergy actually resident and regular- 
ly serving a parish or mission of the Diocese regardless of whether canon- 
ically resident here. 

Although the committees that serve the Convention have done well un- 
der the present system, it was our conclusion that the number of commit- 
tees should be expanded and that they should be designed to deal more 
effectively with the subjects likely to be presented for Convention action, 
permitting the Bishop to name delegates to the committees early enough 
to allow them to familiarize themselves with the resolutions and other 
matters referred to them well before the Convention convenes. In the 
same vein, to facilitate committee work, we sought to strengthen the ex- 
isting rules encouraging the early submission of both resolutions and 
nominations; and we also saw this as another means for assisting dele- 
gates to become acquainted with these matters substantially prior to the 
Convention. Nevertheless, we continue to recommend that both resolu- 
tions and nominations may be introduced at the Convention but only 
with very substantial delegate support. 

Realizing that some of the so-called "canonical committees" heretofore 
employed must function between sessions of the Convention and may 
need members who may not have been elected as delegates, we worked 
to draw a distinction between such committees (which we have denomi- 
nated "commissions") and the committees that serve primarily for a giv- 
en session of the Convention. These matters are treated fully in Part B 
along with other proposals concerning the Convention. 

The Diocesan Council 

Our study of the Convention led us to examine next the Diocesan 
Council, the canonical structure that supports it, its history and the work- 
ings of that body in recent years. Discussions with members of the Coun- 
cil, both past and present, with the Bishops, with the Diocesan Business 
Administrator, and with other experienced men and women gave us use- 
ful insights into the practices and methods used to carry out Council 



174 Diocese of North Carolina 



duties. (We also examined the organizational arrangements employed by 
other dioceses of comparable size and in the same general area of the 
country.) We reached the decision that, for the sake of the Bishop and the 
best use of his time as well as for the on-going work of the Convention it- 
self, the canonical provisions for organizing the Diocesan Council should 
be rewritten to emphasize the body's role as the "Convention between 
sessions of the Convention." 

Since our proposals rely heavily on this concept, we would limit Coun- 
cil membership to persons chosen directly by the Convention, at the 
same time allowing the Council to augment its departments with other 
persons when their skills are deemed useful. This we understand to be a 
return to the fundamental concept of the Council's composition and role. 
A strong department system is proposed to faciliate Council action in per- 
forming the numerous responsibilities assigned to it. At the same time, 
the Council is also given oversight of a number of diocesan officers and 
agencies who have had no guidance and counsel apart from the Conven- 
tion itself. Five departments, as explained in Part B, would be mandated; 
as it sees fit, the Council would be empowered to establish additional de- 
partments. Department members and chairmen would come from the 
Council membership and would be appointed by the Bishop. With Coun- 
cil approval, the Bishop would be able to enlarge the membership of a de- 
partment with persons who are not members of the Council. Voting in 
meetings of the Council would be restricted to Council membership. 

Our work with the Diocesan Council prompted us to look at the role of 
the Trustees of the Diocese, the Chancellor, the Secretary of the Conven- 
tion, the Treasurer of the Diocese, the Diocesan Business Administrator, 
the Registrar and the Historiographer, an examination that led us to make 
relatively minor but we hope useful proposals with regard to these offi- 
cers and their work. 

The Convocations 

Next the committee directed its attention to the convocations and to the 
congregations of the Diocese. Our study demonstrated that, when wisely 
and faithfully used, the convocation works well, both as an agency of the 
Diocese itself and as an agency for cooperative effort among the congre- 
gations in geographic areas smaller than the Diocese. On the other hand, 
we found that there is confusion as to the proper role for convocations. 
Thus, we recommend strengthening the system by making the use of 
convocations mandatory rather than discretionary, requiring the Con- 



Convention Reports 175 



vention (rather than the Council) to decide how many convocations 
should be erected and where their boundaries should be located. 

The bishop and Diocesan Council would be responsible for making 
recommendations to the Convention from time to time as to the number 
and make-up of the convocations; and in establishing them the Conven- 
tion would be required to consider: 

The furtherance, welfare, and efficiency of diocesan work. 

The communicant strength in each proposed convocation. 

The geography of each proposed convocation. 

The regional or community ties existing in each proposed con- 
vocation. 

We also propose that the convocations be assigned a meaningful role in 
the development of diocesan programs and budgets as described in Part 
B. 

In addition to a dean (to be chosen from the clergy), we propose that 
each convocation choose a warden from the laity and that both dean and 
warden be members of the Diocesan Council's department responsible 
for mission and outreach. 

The Congregations 

In considering the congregations of the Diocese we had the benefit of 
the useful work of those persons who have for several years been study- 
ing the role of small churches and their concerns; and we were fully 
aware that the annual Convention that commissioned our committee also 
established a system of lay representation in the Convention that gave 
each congregation a lay delegation of a size roughly proportional to its 
communicant strength. We reached the conclusion that the former dis- 
tinctions drawn between Organized and Unorganized Missions were no 
longer useful. This required us to reassess existing criteria for establish- 
ing missions and to devise appropriate means for admitting a mission into 
union with the Convention and for terminating or suspending that union 
when a mission failed to maintain the standards established by canon. 

Although we spent a substantial amount of time analyzing the criteria 
established by canon for drawing a distinction between parishes and mis- 
sions and concurred in several proposals concerning missions, we decid- 



176 Convention Reports 



ed that the criteria for establishing and maintaining a parish needed fur- 
ther and continuing evaluation. 

The Institutions 

Finally, having had the benefit of Bishop Fraser's long experience with 
the various institutions owned by or affiliated with the Diocese, we stud- 
ied the charters, bylaws, canons and other pertinent documents under 
which all of these institutions operate. We feel that all of them exist for 
and serve valuable purposes in which the Diocese has a genuine interest. 
Nevertheless, we determined that in a number of instances the governing 
instruments placed the Bishop in a difficult and potentially time-consum- 
ing role that he had no choice but to fill. This, in our view, can be produc- 
tive of hard choices for our Bishop; thus we recommend that action be 
taken to effect a modest relaxation of these requirements in order to af- 
ford the Bishop limited relief from these duties at times when he per- 
ceives that other work of the Church needs a greater degree of his atten- 
tion. In Part B may also be found several technical amendments that we 
propose for some of the applicable governing documents. 

Other Diocesan Agencies and Officers 

We have made no recommendations with respect to the role and func- 
tion of the Standing Committee, the Commission on Ministry, and the 
Committee on the Church Pension Fund because these are matters gov- 
erned in large part by the mandates of the General Convention. 

It may also be useful to note that the committee was charged with con- 
sidering diocesan government, not diocesan program; thus we have not 
evaluated those offices and agencies that have been established primarily 
to design and carry out what is usually called "the program" of the 
Church. Although the following list may not be complete, it may be a 
useful catalog of the agencies that are not dealt with directly in this re- 
port: 

Staff agencies: Director of Christian Social Ministries and the 
Public Information Officer. 

Commissions: Worship and Liturgy, Christian Social Ministries, 
Education and Training, Overseas Missions, Small Churches, 
Ecumenical Relations, Alcoholism, and Stewardship. 
The Episcopal Churchwomen. 
The Diocesan Youth Committee. 
The Parish Grant Committee. 
The Francis J. Murdoch Memorial Society.

Historic church committees: St. John's, Wiliamsboro; St. Mary's, 
Orange County; and St. Andrew's, Woodleaf. 

Consultation with Laity and Clergy 

During the months of April and May of 1982, carrying out a plan that 
we announced at the last Convention, our committee held an afternoon 
meeting in each of the five convocations for clergy, persons who had 
served as Convention delegates, persons who had served on vestries and 
mission committees, persons who had served on the Diocesan Council or 
in other diocesan officers, and other interested individuals. To these ses- 
sions we carried the principal issues that had been identified for us or 
which we had identified for ourselves and asked those present to express 
their views on them. In addition, we sought both written and oral opin- 
ion on a wide range of subjects related to the manner in which the Dio- 
cese is organized to perform the work of the Church. To these sessions 
came 228 men and women (181 from the laity and 47 from the clergy). 
Thirty- nine had served on the Diocesan Council; 164 had been delegates 
to the Convention; 147 had participated in convocational meetings; and 
184 had been members of vestries or mission committees. A number had 
held important diocesan offices. The responses were full and extraordi- 
narily helpful to our committee, and we were grateful for the interest that 
was apparent wherever we went. 

The Form of the Report 

Rather than produce a detailed summary and rationalization of our 
proposals for the future government of the Diocese, our committee has 
developed a series of outlines that, according to office or agency, state our 
objectives for the areas dealt with and succinctly state our recommenda- 
tions for Convention action. They constitute the heart of our report and 
are to be found in PART B. 

From the inception of its discussions the committee has been alert to 
the fact that the structure of the Diocese— the manner in which it is or- 
ganized—is based upon directions and specifications in the Constitution 
and canons of the Diocese. Thus, early in our work we enlisted the ad- 
vice and cooperative effort of the Committee on Constitution and Can- 
ons. The members of that body have been generous with their time and 
very helpful to our committee. One happy result of this arrangement is 
that both agencies have concurred in the constitutional and canonical re- 
visions that will be required to put into effect the organizational recom- 



178 Diocese of North Carolina 



mendations contained in our report. The texts of those revisions appear 
in PART C and constitute an integral segment of the report. 

From the time our committee was formed in May 1981 until the Con- 
vention of 1982, we met in formal session ten times; since our adoption 
by the Convention we have met fourteen times. We have benefited from 
the experience of Bishop Fraser, and we have had the whole-hearted par- 
ticipation of Bishop Estill. We present our report to the 167th annual 
Convention of the Diocese with enthusiasm and with the conviction that 
the changes we advocate can strengthen the Church for its tasks in the 
coming years, bearing in mind, however, that when experience justifies 
further changes both Constitution and canons are alterable at the will of 
the Convention.

PARTB 
THE COMMITTEE'S PROPOSALS 

This part of the report contains outline summaries of the proposals that 
the committee places before the Convention for consideration and adop- 
tion. Not all of these recommendations will require amendment of the 
Constitution or canons of the Diocese for implementation but will be- 
come effective if the Convention sees fit to adopt the committee's report. 
The texts of the constitutional and canonical revisions needed to put 
some of the proposals into effect appear in PART C. 

In studying PART B it will be observed that when a recommendation 
would necessitate constitutional or canonical revisions a reference has 
been inserted to identify the appropriate amendment or addition to the 
Constitution or canons, together with a reference to the page in PART C 
on which the text of the recommended revision may be found. As noted 
earlier, these texts have been approved by the Committee on Constitu- 
tion and Canons as well as the Committee on Structure and Organization.

The Episcopate 

Athough the work of the committee is summarized under titles other 
than Bishop and Ecclesiastical Authority, many of the proposals being 
made under other headings are designed to clarify the administrative 
duties of the Bishop so as to make it somewhat easier for him to exercise 
his pastoral and spiritual role. 

S pecific goals : 

To make simpler and more effective for the Bishop the discharge 
of duties in naming the membership of Diocesan Commissions, 
Convention Committees and departments of the Diocesan Council. 

To clarify the Bishop's role as Chairman of the Diocesan Council. 

To clarify the Bishop's role in the employment and termination of 
diocesan staff. 

To allow the Bishop (should he desire to do so] to be relieved of 
some of the burdens imposed by membership on and chairmanship 
of the boards of various institutions owned by or affiliated with the 
Diocese. 

To recognize the value of convocations in carrying out the 
Bishop's role as Chief Pastor. 

Schedule 

Our recommendations include a time schedule that requires that the 
following occur at least the specified number of days prior to the conven- 
ing of the Convention: 

200 days— Secretary of Convention notifies congregations of 
number of lay delegates to elect to Convention. 

110 days— Lay delegates elected and certified. 

90 days— Secretary to publish the names of clerical and lay 
delegates. 

75 days— Convocation meetings of delegates for hearings on pro- 
grams and supporting budgets. 



180 Diocese of North Carolina 



60 days— Department of Budgets of Diocesan Council to prepare 
final budgets. 

40 days— Final date for submission of nominations and resolu- 
tions. 

10 days— Convocation meetings to review and consider revised 
budgets, resolutions and nominations. 

We propose that the preceding schedule (or one in substantially similar 
form) be printed in the Journal of each annual Convention.

To clarify and strengthen the relationship between the Conven- 
tion and the Diocesan Council.

for the subdivision of departments in whatever manner is calculated to 
best perform the various responsibilities assigned to the Council. [Canon

The Convocations 

Goals : 

To recognize the value of convocations to the Bishop in ministering to 
the clergy and congregations. 

To define with greater specificity the use of convocations. 

To make their use mandatory. 

To strengthen the ties between convocations and the Convention.

Advance the missionary work of the Church in the Diocese. 
Provide education and training for both laity and clergy. 
Offer opportunities for worship and devotion. 



Convention Reports 189 

Policy-Making and Administration [Canon 3473(d)]: 

Elect a Dean (from the clergy) and a Warden (from the laity). 
[Canon 34/4] 

Meet twice before each Convention as follows: (1) Not later than 
75 days prior to Convention to hold hearings and discussion of ten- 
tative programs and budgets being proposed for Convention action 
and make recommendations thereon. [Canon 34/4] (2) Not later 
than 10 days prior to Convention to (a) review and discuss revised 
budgets and programs, (b) discuss resolutions and nominations filed 
for Convention action, and (c) elect a Dean and a Warden as provid- 
ed above. [Canon 34/4 see Rules of Order XVII and XVIII] 

Creation and Definition of Boundaries [Canon 34/1] 

Method by Which Established: 

1. Convention is directed to establish convocations; i.e. mandatory. 

2. The Bishop and Diocesan Council, jointly, are directed (from time to 
time) to recommend to Convention the number and proposed boundaries 
considered desirable. 

Criteria for Establishing and Fixing Boundaries: 

1. Furtherance, welfare, and efficiency of diocesan work. 

2. Communicant strength in each proposed convocation. 

3. Geography of each proposed convocation. 

4. Regional or community ties existing in each proposed convocation. 
Meetings (Membership and Quorum Requirements ) 

1. Meetings for General Purposes [Canon 34/5] 

(a) Clerical— members of the clergy resident or doing duty in the 
convocation. 

(b) Lay— delegates from each congregation, the nature and num- 
ber to be indicated by the dean and warden or, if the meeting is 



190 Diocese of North Carolina 



called by the Bishop, to be indicated by the Bishop. 
(c) Quorum— no canonical requirement. 

2. Meetings for Policy-Making and Administrative Purposes [Canon 34/4] 

(a) Clerical— members of the clergy resident in the convocation 
who are eligible to vote in the next Convention. 

(b) Lay— members of the laity who have been elected delegates to 
the next Convention. 

(c) Quorum— A majority in each order. [Canon 34/2] 

Officers [Canon 34/1] 

Clerical: Each convocation is to elect a dean from among the resident 
clergy to serve for a 3-year term. 

Lay: Each convocation is to elect a warden from among the resident lay 
communicants "to serve with and assist the dean" for a 3-year term. 

Diocesan role: Both dean and warden serve as members of the Diocesan 
Council's Department of Mission and Outreach. 

The Congregations 

Goals : 

To remove existing distinctions between Organized and Unorganized 
Missions. 

To redefine and make uniform the criteria for admission of a mission 
into union with the Convention and for retaining that affiliation. 

To simplify and strengthen the relationship between the Bishop and 
mission congregations. 

To evaluate existing standards for the admission of parishes into union 
with the Convention and for maintaining parish status. 

Mission s: 

Authority to Establish a Mission: Remains unchanged except to remove 
obsolete and ineffective references in Constitution and canons to the geo- 
graphic boundaries of parishes. [Constitution IX/1; Canon 27/2] 

Definition of a Mission: Much simplified, to read as follows: 

"A mission is a congregation of communicants seventeen years of 



Convention Reports 191 



age or older of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of 
America that has been organized under the Constitution and canons of 
this Diocese but which is not recognized as a parish." [Canon 27/1] 

Note: This definition does not establish a minimum number of com- 
municants, nor does it require that the congregation have been admitted 
into union with the Convention. 

Admission into Union with the Convention: To be admitted to union, with 
the right of lay representation in the Convention, a mission congregation 
must: 

1. Secure the written approval of the Bishop. [Canon 27/2 and 4] 

2. If within the neighborhood of an existing parish or mission, obtain a 
written statement from the rector or minister in charge that he has been 
consulted as to the wisdom of the establishment of the new congregation. 
[Canon 27/1] If a disagreement arises, provision is made for appeal to the 
Bishop and, ultimately, the Standing Committee. [Canon 20/2] 

3. With the Bishop's consent, assume a name. [Canon 27/4] 

4. Present to the Diocesan Commission on Admission of Congrega- 
tions for approval a certificate that, among other matters, states that the 
congregation has the ability and intends, with the advice and consent of 
the Bishop: 

(a) To provide for regular priestly ministrations; 

(b) To provide a place of worship; and 

(c) To bear its proportionate share of diocesan expenses. [Canon 
27/4] 

Maintaining Affiliation with the Convention: Present requirements would 
be continued [Canon 27/6*] 

(a) Mission must meet the business standards established by 
canon. 

(b) Mission must file the annually required parochial report. 

(c) Mission must not fail for two consecutive years to be represent- 
ed by a lay delegate in the Convention. 



* Under the Constitution, a mission loses its right to vote in Convention (but apparently not 
its affiliation therewith) if it fails for three consecutive years to pay its Episcopal Maintenance 
Fund assessment or the required Pension Fund premiums; but this right may be restored 
upon payment or remission. [Constitution 1X76] 



192 Diocese of North Carolina 



When, in their required review of such matters, the Bishop and Stand- 
ing Committee learn that a mission has not met these requirements, it be- 
comes the duty of the Bishop to recommend that the Convention dissolve 
the mission's affiliation with the Convention. [Canon 24/1] 

Parishes : 

Authority to Form and Be Admitted to Convention: Eliminate the present 
veto power given rectors of parishes in which a new parish may be estab- 
lished; in lieu thereof, require the petitioning congregation to obtain a 
written statement from the rector or minister in charge of any neighbor- 
ing parish or mission to the effect that he has been consulted on the wis- 
dom of establishing any new parish. [Canon 20/1] 

Number of Communicants Necessary to Form and Maintain Status as a 
Parish: The Committee is of the opinion that the number of com- 
municants required to maintain parish status should be the same as the 
number required for admission into union with the Convention. How- 
ever, the Committee has been unable to reach a consensus on what that 
number should be if, in fact, any number should be required. Thus, no 
change is proposed in either Section 1 or Section 3 of Canon 20 insofar as 
number of communicants is concerned. But the Committee suggests that 
the Convention continue to study this matter in whatever manner it 
deems appropriate. 

The Trustees of the Diocese 

Goals : 

To faciliate Trustee action by reducing the number of that body. 
To afford the Trustees a channel for access to the Diocesan Council. 
Through the Diocesan Council, facilitate Convention attention to the 
work of the Trustees. 

Membership : 

For generations the Diocese functioned with only three Trustees; in re- 
cent years, apparently feeling that all bishops should be Trustees, but 
feeling also that it is wise to use an odd- rather than even-numbered 
body, the Diocese has increased the number to the present five. We pro- 
pose returning to three as follows: 

The Ecclesiastical Authority: The Bishop is a Trustee, and, when desig- 
nated the Ecclesiastical Authority, the Bishop Coadjutor is a Trustee; 



Convention Reports 193 



when there is no Bishop and no Bishop Coadjutor so designated, the 
President of the Standing Committee becomes a Trustee. [Canon 9/1] 

Lay: There are to be two lay trustees elected (on nomination of the 
Bishop) by the Convention for 3-year staggered terms. If a vacancy oc- 
curs, the Diocesan Council (on nomination of the Bishop) fills it until 
such time as the Convention can meet and fill the post. [Canon 9/1] 

Relationship to the Diocesan Convention : 

Direct: Lay Trustees are elected by the Convention; and the Trustees 
are required to make an annual report to the Convention. [Canon 9/4] 

Indirect: The Diocesan Council is required to "supervise, coordinate, 
and review the work of all departments, agencies, and diocesan officers 
charged with holding title to property; be responsible for maintaining 
such property; be responsible for holding and investing money and other 
intangibles; and be responsible for administering the provisions of 
trusts. ..." [Canon 16/2(c)] 

The Diocesan Council is required to establish a Department of Proper- 
ty Management to carry out the responsibilities noted (through subcom- 
mittees or otherwise), specifically to review the work of the Trustees 
without interfering with their canonical duties. [Canon 16/4(e)] 

Through the Investment Committee of the Council's Department of 
Property Management, the investment function (now handled by a com- 
parable committee of the Council) will be performed. [Canon 16/4(e)(l)] 

The Institutions 

Goals : 

To recognize the nature of and to clarify the relationship of the Diocese 
with each institution with which it has an affiliation. 

To enable the Diocesan Bishop, when he desires to do so, to obtain re- 
lief from administrative responsibilities in connection with such institu- 
tions without relinquishing the right to reassume them. 

With respect to institutions owned or controlled by the Convention, to 
make uniform provision for the disposition of assets in the event of disso- 
lution. 



194 Diocese of North Carolina 



With respect to owned or controlled institutions, to make uniform 
provision requiring Convention approval of amendments to articles of 
incorporation taking control out of the hands of Convention. 

Categories : 

Institutions with which the Diocese has an affiliation may be grouped 
under the following headings: 

Owned or Controlled Institutions 

1. The Diocesan Conference Center [Canon 31] 

2. North Carolina Episcopal Church Foundation, Inc. [Charter] 

3. The Episcopal Home for the Ageing in the Diocese of North 
Carolina, Inc. [Charter] 

4. The Thompson Orphanage and Training Institution, Inc. [Trust In- 
strument (deed) and Charter] 

Other Institutions 

1. Kanuga Conferences, Inc. [Charter] 

2. St. Augustine's College [Charter] 

3. St. Mary's College [Charter] 

4. The University of the South [Charter] 

Role of Bishop s: 

Owned or Controlled Institutions: Amend Canon 31 (the Diocesan Con- 
ference Center as follows: 

To retain the Diocesan Bishop as a member of the institution's 
Board and retain him as Chairman of the Board, but allow the 
Bishop annually (at the Convention) to designate another person to 
serve in his place on the Board for that one year; similarly, to allow 
the Bishop to make and announce at the Convention a decision to 
designate another member of the Board as Chairman for that year. 
(In either case, the Bishop would be able to choose another bishop 
exercising office in this Diocese, a member of the clergy canonically 
resident in the Diocese, or a lay person resident in the Diocese who 
is a communicant in good standing.) 

To retain the Bishop Coadjutor as a Board member. 



Convention Reports 195 



Request the Foundation and the Home for the Ageing to amend their 
Articles of Incorporation to allow the Bishop to make a decision on 
whether he will serve on their boards or as Chairman in a given year (as 
with the Conference Center) and to provide that if he does so the 
agency's board shall elect one of its members Chairman for any year in 
which the Bishop does not serve on the board or as Chairman. 

Other Institutions: Request each of these institutions to amend its Arti- 
cles of Incorporation and bylaws to authorize the Bishop to exercise the 
power to designate a Board member as in the case of Owned or Con- 
trolled Institutions. 

Charter and By-Law Provisions Concerning Contro l: 

Owned or Controlled Institutions Affected: Foundation, Home for Ageing: 
Request each affected institution's Board to provide that any amend- 
ments taking control of the Board out of the hands of the Diocese would 
have to receive approval of the Convention to become effective. 

Charter and By-Law Provisions Concerning Dissolution : 
Foundation, Home for Ageing : 

Owned or Controlled Institutions: Request each affected institution's 
Board to provide that upon dissolution of the institution all of its property 
will inure to the benefit of the Diocese unless the Convention approves a 
different disposition. 

The Conference Center : 

Not a chartered institution; is wholly controlled by the Convention (by 
canon, etc.) and comparable provisions not needed. 

The Thompson Orphanage and Training Institution, Inc .: 

The deed establishing this institution raises a number of issues that are 
beyond the scope of this committee's responsibility; however, we feel 
that: 

1. The charter and bylaws should be amended to provide that provi- 
sions dealing with dissolution and assumption of control be made parallel 
with those recommended for other Owned or Controlled Institutions, 
above. 



196 Diocese of North Carolina 



2. The Diocese should make a study of this institution with emphasis 
on an examination of the relationship and affiliation between Thompson 
and the Diocese, the objectives of that study to be: 

(a) To clarify the relationship. 

(b) To clarify the relationship between Thompson's Board of 
Managers and its Executive Committee 

jc) To consider whether the Bishop might be permitted to desig- 
nate a Board Chairman or member of the Board (to serve in his 
place) without violating the provisions of the deed that established 
the institution. 



CONSTITUTIONAL AND CANONICAL CHANGES PROPOSED 



Set out in this part of the committee's report are complete texts of the 
revisions of the Constitution, canons and rules of order of the Diocese 
recommended by the Committee on Structure and Organization as need- 
ed to make effective some of the proposals contained in PART B of this 
report. 

The Committee on Structure and Organization is happy to report that 
the Committee on Constitution and Canons concurs in the belief that

A— Constitution: 

ARTICLE II 

Section 1. There shall be an annual Convention of the Church in this 
Diocese at such time and place as may be determined by the next preced- 
ing Convention, or, in the event of no such determination, then at such 
time and place as may be fixed by the Ecclesiastical Authority and the 
Standing Committee. 

Section 2. The time and place of the annual Convention may be 
changed, or special conventions called, by the Ecclesiastical Authority of 
the Diocese, subject to such canonical provisions as may hereafter be 
made. 

Section 3. Written notice of a Special Convention shall be given by the 
Secretary to every member of the clergy who is eligible for a seat and vote in 
the Convention and to the senior warden of every parish and every mis- 
sion therein at least 60 days before the date thereof. This notice shall spe- 
cify the purpose for which the Special Convention is called, and no other 
business shall be in order except by unanimous consent of the delegates. 

ARTICLE III 

Section 1 . The Convention shall be composed of the two orders, clerical 
and lay. 

Section 2. The Bishop of the Diocese, or in his absence, the Bishop Co- 
adjutor, or any bishop in charge, as representing the Ecclesiastical Au- 
thority, shall, in the order named above, if present, preside at all meet- 
ings of the Convention and shall appoint all committees unless it be 
otherwise ordered. 



198 Diocese of North Carolina 



Section 3. Every member of the clergy of the Church who is canonically 
connected with the Diocese, and who is resident therein, and every mem- 
ber of the clergy not so connected with the Diocese but actually resident therein 
and regularly serving a parish or mission in the Diocese, shall be entitled to a 
seat in the Convention and a vote therein. The restriction of residence as 
above required shall not apply to professsors, tutors, or students in any 
recognized theological seminary of this Church or college maintained and 
governed in part by the Diocese, or to any officers or members of the 
staff of the Executive Council, or to chaplains in the Armed Forces of the 
United States, or to members of the clergy in charge of congregations of 
this Diocese. 

Section 4. Each parish and mission in union with the Convention shall 
be entitled to be represented at its sessions by lay delegates whose num- 
ber shall be determined in proportion to the communicant strength of the 
parish or mission as specified by canon. 

These delegates shall be elected by the vestry or mission committee 
from among the communicants in good standing of the parish or mission 
who are 17 years old or older. 

The delegates shall be chosen in a manner provided by canon to assure that 
approximately one-third of the entire lay membership of the Convention is sub- 
ject to election each year. The initial terms of delegates elected by virtue of this 
article shall be determined by the Secretary of the Convention in accordance 
with canon. Subject to changes in representation required by changes in the 
communicant strength of parishes and missions, upon the expiration of the in- 
itial terms of delegates, and upon the expiration of each term thereafter, each 
vestry and mission committee shall elect for a term of three years a successor 
for each lay delegate whose term has expired. 

Each vestry or mission committee shall be entitled to elect, for one-year 
terms, a number of alternate delegates, subject to the same qualifications, 
equal to the delegates elected, who shall be authorized, in the order of their 
election, to fill any vacancy that may occur in the delegation originally 
chosen. 

Section 5. When a mission desires to be admitted into union with the 
Convention, it shall follow the same procedure, so far as applicable, as 
that prescribed for the admission of a parish. 

Section 6. No person, clerical or lay, under ecclesiastical censure, pub- 
licly declared by a competent tribunal, shall be admissible to a seat in the 



Convention Reports 199 



Convention. No person shall be allowed to represent more than one par- 
ish or mission in the same Convention. 

Section 7. If any parish or mission shall neglect or decline to appoint 
delegates, or if any of those appointed shall neglect or be prevented from 
attending, such parish or mission shall nevertheless be bound by the acts 
of the Convention. 

ARTICLE V 

To constitute a quorum, the presence of one-third of all the clergy en- 
titled to vote, and of one or more delegates from one-third of all the par- 
ishes and missions entitled to representation in the Convention, shall be 
necessary. Any lesser number shall be competent to receive reports and 
to recess or adjourn. 

ARTICLE VII 

Section 1. Upon nomination by the Ecclesiastical Authority, the Conven- 
tion shall annually elect a Secretary, who shall hold office until the next 
annual Convention, or until his successor is elected and qualified. 

Section 2. Should a vacancy occur in the office of Secretary by death or 
otherwise, the unexpired term shall be filled by appointment by the Ec- 
clesiastical Authority. 

Section 3. The Secretary shall perform the duties presecribed by canon, 
and such other services as may be required by the Ecclesiastical Author- 
ity. 

Section 4. Upon nomination by the Ecclesiastical Authority, the Con- 
vention shall annually elect a Treasurer of the Diocese, who shall have 
such powers and perform such duties as may be prsecribed by canon or 
required by the Ecclesiastical Authority. 

Section 5. The Secretary and the Treasurer shall be eligible to hold 
other offices in the Diocese either by election or appointment. 

ARTICLE IX 

Section 1. Any 60 or more communicants, 17 years of age or older, of 
the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States may organize them- 
selves into a parish, and be received into union with the Convention, by 



200 Diocese of North Carolina 



taking such steps as may be provided by canon. And the Ecclesiastical 
Authority of the Diocese may organize a mission in such manner as shall 
be provided by canon, in any part of the Diocese not included within the 
neighborhood of a parish in union with the Convention. 

Section 2. It shall always be competent for the Ecclesiastical Authority 
of the Diocese, with the written consent of the rector of any parish, a 
copy of which shall be filed with the Secretary of the Convention, to or- 
ganize a mission within the limits of said parish. The ministers of such a 
mission shall be independent of the rector and responsible only to the Ec- 
clesiastical Authority. If the consent of the rector be denied, an appeal 
may be taken to the Bishop, whose decision, if with the advice and con- 
sent of the Standing Committee, shall be final. 

Section 3. In all parochial and mission elections, only those shall be en- 
titled to vote who are communicants in good standing in this Church, 17 
years of age or older, members of such parish or mission, and who there- 
by consent to be governed by the Constitution and canons of this Church 
as are or may be adopted by the General Convention, and the Conven- 
tion of the Diocese pursuant thereto. 

Section 4. Any parish ceasing to be represented in the Convention for 
two successive years, or any parish resisting the authority of the Conven- 
tion, may be suspended from the right of representation, or its connec- 
tion with the Convention be dissolved, by a vote of a majority of all the 
clergy present and entitled to vote, and a majority of all delegates present 
and entitled to vote. No such suspension or dissolution shall take place 
without previous inquiry by a committee appointed for the purpose, and 
a report upon the facts of the case; nor until after 30 days' notice to the 
rector or vestry, or in the case there be none, then to a member of the 
parish in default. 

Section 5. Any parish which receives aid from the mission funds of the 
Diocese and does not, for two consecutive years, pay its proportion of the 
salary of the minister serving it, shall be deprived of the right to vote in 
the Convention until such arrears be paid or remitted by the Convention. 

Section 6. Any parish or mission which shall fail for three consecutive 
years to pay its assessment for the Episcopal Maintenance Fund, or shall 
have failed to observe the conditions of Title I, Canon 7, of the General 
Convention relative to the Church Pension Fund, shall be deprived of the 
right to vote in the Convention until such arrears be paid or remitted by 
the Convention.

Report of the Treasurer 

BISHOP ESTILL, DELEGATES, VISITORS: 

Copies of the 1982 Treasurer's Report have been included in your re- 
gistration packet. While you are finding the report, and before I comment 
on it specifically, let me say a few things. The Diocese has been— and 
is— fortunate to have an outstanding House staff. This Treasurer's Report 
largely encompasses the work of our former Business Ad- 
ministrator/Treasurer, Mike Schenck. After Mike's resignation at the end 
of November, the work of the Business Administrator/Treasurer was car- 
ried on by two very capable and efficient people, Lillian Reynolds, Secre- 
tary to the Business Administrator, and Becky Kagey, our Bookkeeper. 
We are grateful to both of them for carrying on the work of the Business 
Office and for the preparation of this Report. 

Page 1 presents a balance sheet for each of the funds; support pages for 
these funds follow. 

Pages 2 and 3 give the details of the Episcopal Maintenance Fund. Total 
income for this fund was $393,707.32; the majority of this income was 



202 Diocese of North Carolina 



from assessments. As of this report, the churches had paid 98. 1% of their 
assessments. Since the printing of this report, we have received addi- 
tional 1982 assessment income of $6,462.08, which brings this figure 
slightly under the budgeted figure (about $600). Expenses in this Main- 
tenance budget for 1982 totaled $386,835.27, some $11,875 under budget, 
resulting in an excess of receipts over disbursements for 1982 of 
$6,872.05. 

The detail for the Church's Program Fund is found on pages 4 and 5. 
Total income for 1982 was $780,026.43; the majority of this income was 
from the churches' quota payments, which equalled 98% of the amount 
churches pledged to this budget. Since the printing of this report, we 
have received additional quota income of $5,801.48. The disbursements 
for the Program budget were $768,807.45, some $62,500 under budget. 
This resulted in an excess of receipts over disbursements of $11,218.98. 
As you can see on page 4, line items 16, 25, 26 and 27 contributed to this 
excess. Also, as you can see, we did not have to use any of the Church's 
Program Reserve income (as budgeted)— and we were also able to com- 
plete our repayment to the principal of this Reserve— as indicated by line 
item 46. Pages 6 and 7 list each church's assessment and quota and the 
total amount paid to each of these funds in 1982. As I mentioned earlier, 
several churches have made additional 1982 payments during January, 
1983. 

Page 8 summarizes funds that the Treasurer holds in custody for other 
people or groups of people for their various special programs or pur- 
poses. 

Page 9 gives you a summary of the $2 Million campaign. This report is 
a composite of the campaign since its beginning in late 1978 through 
December 31, 1982. The total amount of income from pledges as of De- 
cember 31, 1982, including churches, ECW, Youth and Individuals, 
totals $1,353,677.51. Income from other sources (not necessarily antici- 
pated or pledged) totals $504,868.32. Thus we have collected a total of 
$1,858,545.83 for the campaign. Our Conference Center construction 
loan was $426,000. This brings total funds available to $2,284,545.83. 

During this time, we have been disbursing campaign funds; you will 
find those figures in the middle of page 9. To the Conference Center: a 
total of $1,284,663.15. To Venture in Mission: a total of $514,150.18. The 
total campaign committee expense has been $20,992.77. We have, as of 
December 31, 1982, repaid $230,000 of our Conference Center construc- 
tion loans. This brings total disbursements for the campaign, as of De- 



Convention Reports 203 



cember 31, 1982, to $2,049,806.10. As of this same date, we had a balance 
on hand of $234,739.73. I would like to give you some facts and figures 
that are not a part of this 1982 Campaign Report. They relate to the status 
of campaign commitments. 

First, VIM: As of January 1, 1983 we had commitments to VIM totaling 
$67,344.34. The Diocesan Council at its January meeting authorized pay- 
ments of $67,344.34, which completes our commitments to VIM. 

Secondly, The Conference Center: The Council voted in January to 
take the remaining undesignated funds and apply them to the Con- 
ference Center loan. After paying the interest due at this time, and apply- 
ing the remaining undesignated funds against the principal, we will have 
approximately $40,000 left on the principal with continuing interest. This 
figure is lower than the one presented earlier from the recent Council 
meeting. It represents a very happy error, on my part, in this presenta- 
tion. 

On page 10, you will find a list of church pledges and payments to the 
campaign. An additional $30,447.24 has been received in January, 1983. 
The Council voted at its January meeting to mail to each church a report 
regarding individual payments; this will be coming to you soon. 

For those of you who have not completed your pledge, let me urge you 
to respond to this letter, telling us when you will be able to complete your 
commitment. We are most anxious to complete payment on the loan, 
plus the interest it is incurring. One or two of you indicted initially that 
your payments would extend past 1982; we respect this indication. 

Obviously, if all pledges are paid in full, we will be able to meet all 
commitments. There are many large immediate capital needs at the Cen- 
ter. The Council will decide as to how any undesignated excess funds 
will be used. 

On page 11, you will find a report of the Trust Fund income for 1982. 
Most of the accounts are bound by a trust agreement; the income was re- 
ceived and disbursed in accordance with those agreements. 

Page 12 gives a brief report on the Conference Center Operation for 
1982. On the upper portion of this report you will find the balance sheet 
as of December 31, 1982; the lower portion of the page gives a 1982 Sum- 
mary Income/Expense Report of the Center's activity for last year.

Diocese of North Carolina 



It was a good year, as evidenced by these various reports. I am sure 
that our new Treasurer will need our continued interest and support. On 
your behalf, I would like to assure her of this support. We look forward 
to working with. you, Mrs. Magdanz. 

Thank you. 



Mrs. Anne Tomlinson

We have read these reports and find them to be in order. Furthermore, 
we are deeply grateful to these various bodies for the ever more work 
and ministry which lies behind the written words. All of these reports, 
with one exception, are printed in The Communicant, and we urge your 
careful reading of them. The report of the Diocesan Commission on Ste- 
wardship was not printed in The Communicant, but our Committee 
urges that it be published in the next issue. You have heard from Dr. 
Busch this morning, and we would like to underline the request of the 
Stewardship Commission that the questionnaire mailed to the congrega- 
tions will be carefully filled out and returned to the Commission. 

This Committee had two Resolutions referred to it. The first is a Res- 
olution on Scouting, and it is printed on page 8 of The Communicant's 
Special Convention Insert. On behalf of the Committee, I move its adop- 
tion as written.

and it is printed on page 1 of The Communicant Insert. On behalf of the 
Committee, I move its adoption as written.

Resolution on Scouting 



WHEREAS the 62nd General Convention of the Church, meeting in 
Seattle, Washington on September 17-27, 1967, adopted the following 
resolution on Scouting: 

WHEREAS the Scout movement has for more than fifty years 
proved its usefulness in the physical, intellectual, moral and spiri- 
tual training of the boys of America; and 

WHEREAS a number of Church bodies, including several mem- 
ber Churches of the Anglican Communion, officially recommend 
and encourage the Scout movement in their congregations; 

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, the House of Bishops con- 
curring, that this Convention approve and recommend the use of 
the Scout program in the parishes and missions of this Church, 
and be it further 

RESOLVED that this Convention hereby urges a continued em- 
phasis in this program upon its religious elements, including the 
priority of one's duty to God and neighbor and of the obligations of 
worship and participation in the Church's sacraments, and be it 
further 

RESOLVED that the Department of Christian Education be 
asked to continue to arrange for the circulation of appropriate in- 
formational material on the use of this program in our parishes 
and missions; 

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that this 167th Convention of the 
Diocese of North Carolina approves and encourages the implementation 
of this resolution through the formation in this Diocese of a Committee

1 . to make all parishes and missions of the Diocese aware of the oppor- 
tunities afforded them through the use of Scouting as a part of the minis- 
try of the Church;

2. to keep the parishes and missions of the Diocese informed of all 
changes in the God and Country program and to encourage the use of 
that program in Church-sponsored Scout units; 

3. to encourage the parishes and missions of the Diocese to use the 
Scouting program as a resource program for our youth, becoming Char- 
tered Partners with the Boy Scouts of America. 

The Reverend Douglas E. Remer 



Resolution of Support for Theological Education 

WHEREAS the 67th General Convention adopted a resolution estab- 
lishing as policy that each parish and mission of the Diocese shall give an- 
nually at least 1% of its net disposable budgeted income to one or more

Diocese adopt a procedure by January 1, 1984 to implement this policy; 

BE IT RESOLVED, that this Diocese adopts the following procedure: 

Each parish and mission of this Diocese, having accepted its full quota 
to the Church's Program Fund, will send to the Treasurer of the Diocese 
on or before December 1 of each year an amount equal to at least 1% of 
its net disposable budgeted income (Parochial Report line item E less line 
item No. 1754) for the preceding year;

Report of the Committee 
on Social and Political Concerns 

Our report consists of the presentation for your consideration of six res- 
olutions which have been referred to this Committee, as follows: 

Resolution on Central American Peacemaking 

WHEREAS, increased U.S. military involvement with, and support for, 
the governments of Central America is an issue which needs the im- 
mediate attention of all Christians; and 

WHEREAS, we believe that millions of U.S. tax dollars reportedly now 
being allocated for military equipment, training, and support of govern- 



Convention Reports 229 



ments with questionable human rights policies in El Salvador, 
Guatemala, and Honduras could better be used to meet human needs; 
and, 

WHEREAS, we believe the evidence shows that the primary thrusts of 
the struggle in Central America are the desire of peoples to be free of mil- 
itary dictatorships, to have freedom from terror for their families, and to 
have enough land and food to sustain them; and, 

WHEREAS, the Church and its workers are frequently in danger be- 
cause of their commitment to the poor in El Salvador, Guatemala, and 
Honduras; 

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the 167th Convention of the Dio- 
cese of North Carolina encourages the congregations of the Diocese to: 

1. Pray and strive for an early peace in El Salvador and Guatemala; 

2. Become increasingly informed about peace and justice issues in 
Central America; sponsor discussions in adult and youth education pro- 
grams in order to promote an understanding of the issues confronting 
Central America; 

3. Participate in study and support groups in North Carolina (for fur- 
ther information on such groups, contact the Carolina Interfaith Task 
Force on Central America (CITCA), 1105 Sapling Place, Raleigh, NC 
27609); 

4. Participate in Central America Week, March 18-27, 1983; 

5. Urge congregations to take up a special collection for Central Ameri- 
can refugees, which may be channeled through the Presiding Bishop's 
Fund for World Relief; 

6. Have communicants share their views with members of Congress. 



Resolution on Termination of Pregnancy 

WHEREAS the 67th General Convention of the Episcopal Church re- 
solved the following: 



230 Diocese of North Carolina 



1. The beginning of new human life, because it is a gift of the 
power of God's love for His people, and thereby sacred, should not 
and must not be undertaken unadvisedly or lightly but in full ac- 
cordance of the understanding for which this power to conceive 
and give birth is bestowed by God. 

2. Such understanding includes the responsibility for Christians 
to limit the size of their families and to practice responsible birth 
control Such means for moral limitations do no include abortion 
for convenience. 

3. The position of this Church, stated at the 62nd General Con- 
vention of the Church in Seattle in 1967 which declared support 
for "the termination of pregnancy" particularly in those cases 
where "the physical or mental health of the mother is threatened 
seriously, or where there is substantial reason to believe that the 
child would be born badly deformed in mind or body, or where the 
pregnancy has resulted from rape or incest" is reaffirmed. Termi- 
nation of pregnancy for these reasons is permissible. 

4. In those cases where it is firmly and deeply believed by the 
person or persons concerned that pregnancy should be terminated 
for causes other than the above, members of this Church are urged 
to seek the advice and counsel of a priest of this Church, and, 
where appropriate, penance. 

5. Whenever members of this Church are consulted with regard 
to proposed termination of pregnancy, they are to explore with the 
person or persons seeking advice and counsel other preferable 
courses of action. 

6. The Episcopal Church expresses its unequivocal opposition 
to any legislation on the part of the national or state governments 
which would abridge or deny the right of individuals to reach in- 
formed decisions in this matter and to act upon them. 

AND WHEREAS federal legislation has been proposed that might con- 
tradict the stated policy of The Episcopal Church; 

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that this Convention of the Diocese of 
North Carolina conveys the resolution of the General Convention of the 



Convention Reports 231 



Episcopal Church to the U.S. Senators and Congressmen from the State 
of North Carolina. 



Resolution on Bilateral Nuclear Weapons Freeze 

WHEREAS the 67th General Convention of the Episcopal Church at 
New Orleans "endorsed as a first step leading to a reduction of nuclear 
weapons a bilateral nuclear freeze and urges the President of the United 
States to propose a U.S. /Soviet agreement to halt immediately the testing, 
production and further deployment of all nuclear weapons, missiles and 
delivery systems in a way that can be verified on both sides' ' and encour- 
ages Dioceses to communicate on a continuing basis within their local

U.S./U.S.S.R. nuclear weapons freeze, together with an agreement for a 
mutually verifiable halt immediately of testing, production, and further 
deployment of all nuclear weapons, missiles, and delivery systems. 



Resolution on Alternatives to Incarceration 

WHEREAS 76% of all admissions to prison in North Carolina in 1980 
were for nonviolent crimes; 

WHEREAS, with 17,400 people in prison North Carolina has the sec- 
ond-highest incarceration rate in the nation, and one of the highest rates 
in the world; 

WHEREAS the cost of incarceration is $9,500 per year per person and 
the cost of constructing one new prison is $27 million; 

WHEREAS over 95% of those sentenced to prison will eventually re- 
turn to their communities; 

WHEREAS there are alternative programs and policies being tried in 
many states across the country; 



232 Diocese of North Carolina 



WHEREAS the Citizens Commission on Alternatives to Incarceration, 
chaired by Judge Willis P. Whichard, has carefully considered the prob- 
lem and offered recommendations; 

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT: 

The Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina, at its 167th Convention 

Endorses the efforts of the Citizens Commission on Alternatives to In- 
carceration to promote community-based penalties for non-violent of- 
fenders, and supports alternative programs and policies that would have 
an impact on the State's high incarceration rate, such as examining op- 
tions at every stage of the criminal justice system, before trial, at sentenc- 
ing, and at release; reviewing alternatives for prison-bound offenders 
before any new prisons are constructed; and 

Urges the North Carolina Legislature to pass appropriate legislation to 
implement the programs and policies of this Commission.

of God; 

WHEREAS, older adults have the right to be heard and the need to be 
included; 

WHEREAS, growing numbers of parishes are developing models for 
ministry with older adults; 

WHEREAS, the Task Force on Aging has been functioning for the past

NOW THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the 167th Convention of 
the Diocese of North Carolina establish a Commission on Aging of 12 per- 
sons who shall be appointed by the Bishop to staggered terms of three 
years each. 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that this Commission on Aging be 
charged with Diocesan planning, development, and implementation of a 
network to share models of ministry, to identify resources, and to high- 
light issues of aging in the Diocese of North Carolina and, in consultation 



Convention Reports 233 



with the Diocesan Council, prepare for presentation to the next Diocesan 
Convention recommendations for the future work of ministry to the ag- 
ing in the Diocese.

resoundingly affirmed the concept of the Jubilee Ministry; and 

WHEREAS the economic and spiritual needs of urban and rural Ameri- 
cans continue to multiply; and

ceses in 1984 and 1985. 



Report of the Commission on Alcoholism 

Bishop and Members of Convention: 

I report to you on behalf of the members of the Commission and parti- 
cularly our Chairman, Irma Hoffman, who was unable to attend this 
Convention because she suffered a broken foot a little over a month ago. I 
trust that you join me in prayers and concern for her speedy recovery. 

The members of the Commission for 1982 have been: 

Mrs. Barbara Boixeau 

Mrs. Jane Gregg 

Mr. Dunbar Jewel 

Mr. Cliff Sanderson 

Mr. Bob Somers 

Mr. Frank White 

(The Rev. Jody Kellerman resigned from the Commission in 

late 1982.) 

The Commission was formed as a result of the action of this Conven- 
tion in 1981. Since its beginning, the Commission has undertaken five 
main activities: 

1. Production of a slide presentation shown last year. 

2. Establishment of a Diocesan Policy adopted last year by this Con- 
vention. 

3. Exploration of employee (both lay and clergy) policies regarding the 
treatment of alcoholism and drug abuse, particularly the insurance cover- 
age for long-term detoxification and rehabilitative treatment centers such 
as Fellowship Hall near Greensboro. 

4. Collecting and providing written materials and resources to be dis- 
tributed to any interested parties. 



:':S- 



Convention Reports 235 



5. Planning and execution of a regional workshop for clergy and laity 
on alcoholism and drug abuse. 

The first of those workshops has been held, and I would like to explain 
its nature and intent. An Educational Workshop was held at All Saints, 
Concord with some 40 people representing nine different congregations 
in attendance. The following topics and areas were explored: 

1. Attitudes toward alcohol/drugs— knowledge and alcoholism. 

2. We explored alcoholism as a disease with the guidance of Mr. James 
Emmert. 

3. We heard from Bishop Fraser as a fellow traveler who is confronted 
almost daily with the concerns surrounding alcoholism and drug abuse. 

4. The Rev. Jody Kellerman spoke on Alcoholism, A Family Disease. 

5. A presentation on the Procedure of Intervention was made by Dr. 
Ed Hoffman. 

6. We heard the story of a woman whose life and freedom was disturb- 
ed, devastated, and torn apart by alcoholism. She also shared with us the 
story of her new life of sobriety. 

7. We looked finally at the role of the church. 

We hope that educational programs will emanate from this work 
which will inform and stimulate awarenesses of more and more people 
so that we can be a part of creating a climate in which the problem of al- 
coholism and drug abuse can be addressed and hopefully solved. We, the 
members of every congregation, need to fight the shame and secrecy that 
often surrounds the illness. We can and need desperately to help in the 
creation of understanding and care for people affected by this disease (the 
individuals and their families) . We can and need desperately to attack the 
disease (not the alcoholic). Education can help immeasurably in these ef- 
forts. 

The Commission on Alcoholism wishes to enlist your support in the fu- 
ture which begins right now. There are materials available in the display 
area, 2nd floor. 



236 Diocese of North Carolina 



We plan additional workshops which will be held on a roughly convo- 
cational but more regional basis. We are willing to help in the establish- 
ment of a Commission on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse in any congrega- 
tion which wishes to begin work on this problem that has reached epi- 
demic proportions. It would be our heartfelt dream and prayer that every 
congregation could establish such a group that would concern itself with 
the issues and attitudes which surround the area of drugs and alcohol. 

We, the Commission, are most grateful for your generosity and vision 
in establishing this work. We are also glad to now be a part of the Dioce- 
san budget. You can find us on line 35, Church's Program Budget. We re- 
quest your continued support. We ask as strongly as we possibly can that 
you join us in the struggle against this problem which (I would guess) has 
touched either directly or indirectly every person in this room and within 
my hearing.

Report of the Committee on Institutions 

Bishop Estill, Members of the Convention, ladies and gentlemen, in the 
special January 1983 issue of The Communicant are printed reports from 
all but one (Kanuga) of the institutions related to this Diocese; the full re- 
ports of each institution will be printed in the Journal of the one hundred 
sixty-seventh annual convention. We commend them to your attention. 
Given the fact of the availability of these reports, at least one member of 
this committee wonders (perhaps impertinently) about the necessity for 
this committee's existence. 

Nevertheless, we have read the reports and offer the following com- 
ments: 

Every report reflects the difficulties all institutions are facing in these 
hard economic times. We think it is particularly worthy of commenda- 
tion that each institution has found creative ways to use all its resources. 
Especially noteworthy is the fact that two institutions, The Home for the 
Ageing and Episcopal Child Care Services, have managed to expand ser-/ 
vices in spite of the current recession/depression. 



Convention Reports 237 



Kanuga 

Kanuga is an Episcopal Conference Center located in Hendersonville, 
North Carolina. It has attained national reputation as a conference center, 
both because of its facilities and the quality of its program offerings. 

In May, a very sad event occurred— the sudden death of Edgar Hartley, 
Jr., the Executive Director since 1963. Kanuga' s growth and national 
standing as a conference center is felt to be his "far-reaching legacy." In 
addition, the Reverend G. LaRue Downing, Director of the Program, re- 
signed in November to accept a call to become Rector of the Church of 
the Good Shepherd, Augusta, Georgia. 

The Board of Directors has selected a new President, Albert S. Gooch, 
currently Director of Admissions at The University of the South. He will 
assume his post in April, until which time John V. Flanagan is serving as 
Acting President. The position of Director of Program is currently not fill- 
ed. 

The conference center continues to grow and a large number of pro- 
grams and activities is already scheduled for 1983. 

Episcopal Child Care Services 

The past year for the Thompson-Episcopal Child Care Services has 
been a positive one. Highlighting the year has been the gift of a new 
chapel on the Charlotte campus, which has become a place claimed by 
the children as their own. Also, the major changes in Federal budget re- 
ductions have resulted in a number of creative responses undergirded by 
"a new spirit of cooperation" among all the staff. 

The year 1983 has begun with a sense of new mission with particular 
focus on children with special needs who are not receiving help. In parti- 
cular, there are two programs currently being considered. First, one of 
the cottages closed in Charlotte because of budget cuts will reopen in the 
spring with a focus on preparing children without families for adoptive 
placement. This special cottage focus is a unique approach, providing an 
opportunity to work with the particular needs and concerns of these chil- 
dren. Secondly, consideration is being given to the feasibility of weekend 
and day-long care for children with special needs who would continue 
living at home with their families. Mildly retarded children are being 
given special consideration. The use of the chapel, gym and indoor pool 
would provide unique opportunities for recreational and socialization ex- 



238 Diocese of North Carolina 



periences. Research on this type of plan and its possibilities are incom- 
plete, but the staff anticipates making a recommendation to the Board or 
Executive Committee during the year. 

The Diocesan Churches and many supportive friends have helped to 
fill in the gap caused by Federal cut-backs, enabling Episcopal Child Care 
Services to continue the service to many children in North Carolina. Con- 
tinuation of this support will be needed in the year to come. 

Saint Augustine's College 

Saint Augustine's College began its 1 16th academic year with an enroll- 
ment of 1,573. The administration currently is moving in an orderly man- 
ner to reduce enrollment from 1,650 to a more carefully selected, full- 
time equivalent of about 1,400 students, who are both academically more 
prepared and financially more able to pay a larger share of the charges 
made. Nearly half of the Saint Augustine's students come from families 
with incomes of less than $12,000 annually. Sad to relate, Saint Augus- 
tine's had to refuse admission to approximately 65 applicants on the basis 
that they lacked a well-defined plan to meet financial obligations. 

It should be noted and applauded that Saint Augustine's closed out its 
16th consecutive year with a balanced budget!! 

In February 1982, the college launched a $35 million development 
campaign, of which amount the alumni of the college are committed to 
raising $2 million. In the current economy, many foundations have made 
drastic cut-backs in gifts. For an institution like Saint Augustine's to re- 
ceive a grant from a major foundation, it is going to become increasingly 
necessary for friends like those at this convention to open doors for them. 
The College will be depending increasingly upon support from parishes 
and organizations of the Diocese. 

St. Mary's College 

In its 141st year, St. Mary's College is operating at full boarding capaci- 
ty, with a total of 503 students (312 in the College and 187 in the High 
School). 

St. Mary's, the one Episcopal women's college in the United States, has 
ties wth the five Dioceses of North and South Carolina. Thirty-nine per- 
cent of the students are Episcopalians, about 240 living within our own 
Diocese of North Carolina. 



Convention Reports 239 



St. Mary's now has a business administration program, designed to 
prepare students for the job market, or to transfer to such programs at 
senior institutions. 

Support of the 1981-82 operating budget from parishes and ECWs in 
the five Dioceses of North and South Carolina amounted to less than 1% 
of the operating budget. There is an upswing, however, in sustained 
church support of that budget. There is a real concern for additional 
scholarship aid. 

The Diocese of North Carolina, the Diocesan ECW, 11 parishes, and 12 
ECW groups contributed $39,893 to the College in 1981-82. Of this, 
$30,714 represented a Venture in Mission gift to the Diocese of North 
Carolina Scholarship Fund. 

The Episcopal Home for the Ageing 

At The Episcopal Home for the Ageing (Penick Home) there was posi- 
tive growth in number, because of the new Weymouth Apartments; in 
fiscal responsibility due to careful surveillance by the Administrator, the 
Board of Directors, and the direct support of the parishes, individuals, 
and foundations; and in spiritual depth and resident participation realiz- 
ed through the staff and its full-time Chaplain. Such an experience has 
strengthened its influence in the field of gerontology, as a mission of this 
Diocese. 

The Task Force on Aging 

The Task Force on Aging has become visible during the past year 
through the sponsorship of the Workshop on Aging held at the Con- 
ference Center. Representatives from local parishes gathered to share 
successful models of ministry with older adults in the community; to 
challenge the negative stereotypes about the aging; to encourage the in- 
volvement of older adults in the planning process; and to be counselled 
by our senior pastor, Bishop Fraser, in the journey of faith. 

We support the ad hoc Task Force Committee's request that it become 
a standing committee of the Diocese. 

The Conference Center (Browns Summit) 

"The Conference Center of the Diocese has been operating now for 
over eighteen months, and its use has grown continuously through that 
period." 



240 Diocese of North Carolina 



Many Diocesan and parish events have occurred there; 'outside' 
groups (other denominational groups as well as non-church groups) have 
also used the center. 

Most weekends are filled, now, at Browns Summit. The Board urges us 
to be aware that early to mid-week times at the Center are often 
available. 

In May, the first Director, John Cosby, resigned; Michael Schenck III 
served in the interim until October 1, when Joseph B. (Dick) Hord, Jr. 
came aboard as the new Executive Director. 

The University of the South 

A new Dean for the School of Theology of the University of the South 
at Sewanee, the Very Rev. John Booty, was installed in office in 1982. 

The excellence of the educational programs of the University was rec- 
ognized by significant national awards granted to four students for 
graduate study. 

Though total gift income from the Diocese of North Carolina for 1982 
increased from $3,406 to $32,132, the need for increased support from 
sponsoring dioceses to help meet the growing crisis in financial aid for 
students remains critical. 

Each of these institutions represents a different expression of the work 
of the church. Some may think one more important; some may think an- 
other more important. But the diversity surely provides every one of us 
ample opportunity to exercise the stewardship which it is at once our 
great responsibility and high privilege to do. 

The Rev. Peter Keese 



Report on the State of the Church 

Bishop Estill, Members of the Convention: 

The year 1982 has obviously been for the Diocese of North Carolina a 
year of transition. As we are all aware, from the time Bishop Fraser an- 
nounced his retirement date at the last Convention, this sense of transi- 
tion has entered all facets of Diocesan life. 



Convention Reports 241 



Bishop Fraser has left to his successor a strong Diocese. Through years 
of very great change in both the Church and Society he has kept this por- 
tion of the Church on a steady course as we have sought to live out our 
Lord's will for us. 

Much of the work assigned by Canon to the Committee on the State of 
the Church is being done by the Committee on Structure and organiza- 
tion and by the Committee on Constitution and Canons. These Commit- 
tees have given a tremendous amount of time, thought and effort as they 
have sought from the people of the Diocese our ideas as to what organiza- 
tional structure we wanted, and the best way to implement those 
changes. Regardless of how this convention votes on these propsoals, the 
Diocese of North Carolina should commend the members of these com- 
mittees for their painstaking and thought-provoking proposals. 

The Report on the State of the Church at the last convention pointed 
out that over the last several years our numbers have not really grown. 
The same is true for the past year. That report also spoke to the fact that 
our financial resources have not grown in the light of inflation. This past 
year has shown no improvement. Our Lord's commission that we should 
go into all the world applies not only to exotic, far-off places. It applies to 
us, here and now, wherever we are. We are all called to be evangelists to 
whomever we come in contact. We commend to your serious considera- 
tion the Evangelism and Renewal Commission, and we call upon that 
Commission to educate us and equip us for this mission that is a part of 
the ministry of all Christians, the sharing of what God is doing in our 
lives. We would also recommend to the Bishop, as he appoints members 
of the Evangelism and Renewal Commission, that he keep in mind the 
major renewal movements active in the Diocese, Cursillo, Marriage En- 
counter and Faith Alive. 

The recent General Convention of the Church took the major step of 
adopting the biblical tithe as the standard of giving for the Church. If we 
take this seriously and respond accordingly, The Diocese of North Caro- 
lina would have the happy problem of deciding where best to place its 
greatly increased resources for the most effective program of mission and 
ministry. We trust that the Commission on Stewardship will be propos- 
ing to the diocese programs and education designed to increase our 
awareness that we are only stewards, caretakers, of what our loving God 
has entrusted to us, and that as responsible stewards of his creation, we 
are called upon to care for this earth on which we are privileged to live, 
to care for all its creatures, and to use wisely its resources. We consider 
ourselves a biblical Church. Our worship is composed mainly of direct 



242 Diocese of North Carolina 



biblical quotation or is directly attributable to Holy Scripture. When one 
reads the Bible, there is no escaping the stark reality of God's passionate 
concern for the poor, the downtrodden, the oppressed in our world. The 
economy of our time calls upon us to respond. We commend those 
churches that operate shelters for the homeless, clothes closets for the ill- 
clad, and feeding programs for the hungry. We suggest that every congre- 
gation in this Diocese look hard at its community to find where it may 
serve in this area of growing need. 

In the light of the conditions of the world around us, we know the 
years ahead are uncertain. We also know they will present to us increas- 
ed opportunities for ministry to that world. As we move into a new phase 
of our diocesan life, we do so with excitement and expectancy as Bishop 
Estill begins his episcopate and brings to us his vision of what this Dio- 
cese should be and what it should be doing, and we believe this Diocese 
will offer him its full support in the mission and ministry to which we are 
all called. 



Louis C. Melcher, Jr. 



Report of the Committee 
on the Bishop's Address 

Bishop Estill and fellow members of the Diocese of North Carolina: 

We respond not just to the words of the Bishop's address on Friday 
morning, but to his words and the action of the great service of In- 
vestiture on Thursday evening at Duke Chapel— for we see them as a 
whole. We heard his challenge to us who live on "this fragile earth, our 
island home" to be good stewards of our environment in an explosive 
world. 

We appreciate his sensitivity to our heritage, our history and roots in 
this Diocese which give meaning to the present and hope for the future. 
We heard him affirm positively the good and existing institutions in the 
Diocese; we are doing a lot and we should claim it. We too are interested 
in the renewed Diaconate and in exploring new ways of ministry. 

We like his emphasis on retreats for clergy and laity and his willingness 
to share himself with us on these occasions. There we catch the vision of 



Convention Reports 243 



God— in being still and knowing God. We also note his mention of more 
programs and opportunities for the youth of our Diocese. 

We believe that this Diocese is indeed moving ahead on many fronts, 
simultaneously, with many postulants for Holy Orders and emphasis on 
ministry where we are. We are appreciative of the new structure now in 
place which will help implement our work. We agree with the need Bish- 
op Estill underlined for more and expanded black congregations and 
clergy. 

His emphasis on our relationship to the world through a possible com- 
panion diocese and renewed ecumenical relations with our brothers and 
sisters in other branches of Christ's Church, especially Lutheran and Ro- 
man Catholic, is heartily approved and especially his emphasis on the lay 
ministry, Education for Ministry, and other Christian Education pro- 
grams to equip us for ministry. 

It was good to be there in Duke Chapel— to know that we are not alone 
but surrounded on every side by a great cloud of witnesses, visible and 
invisible— to be a part of the larger church only to be sent down the 
mountain again to the needs of the world wherever we may live in it. 

We do not look to Raleigh for a ' 'big do, " to do it "for us, ' ' but we are to 
bloom and minister where we are planted. 

It is all summed up in Bishop Estill's words and desire "to open, not 
close places"— to open the doors and windows, not only of our churches 
and missions, but of our lives to the Spirit of God— to let Him blow 
through us and in us. Remembering that wonderful character, Zorba, we 
invite you to join us as we accept Bishop Estill's invitation "to 
dance"— not naively but with eyes wide open in joy and hope. We're 
glad to be in this with you and to dance with you and the Lord of Life. 

The Rev. Josh T. MacKenzie 



Report of the Task Force 
on Evangelism and Renewal 

Bishop Estill, Bishop Putnam, Delegates and Guests to the 167th Dioce- 
san Convention, I offer you the Report of the Task Force on Evangelism 
and Renewal in the Diocese of North Carolina. 



244 Diocese of North Carolina 



This Task Force was appointed at the request of the 166th Annual Con- 
vention, meeting in Wait Chapel at Wake Forest University, Winston- 
Salem, North Carolina. The need for such a Task Force was made known 
through the Report of the Committee on the State of the Church and pre- 
sented to Convention by the Rev. Lawrence K. Brown. The entirety of 
this report may be found beginning on page 180 of the Journal of the 
166th Annual Convention; however, I wish to recall to you only those 
statements pertinent to the establishment of this Task Force. 

Mr. Brown reported a status of good general health for the diocese; that 
the parishioner is interested in the well-being of his parish and the dio- 
cese. Though leadership was thought to be excellent, there existed a de- 
sire for "better communication with, and understanding of, the diocese 
and its contribution to his (the parishioner's) spiritual life." 

The survey conducted by the Committee on the State of the Church re- 
vealed an excellent morale in every area of the Church. That committee 
further stated, "We do strongly believe that if this good attitude can be 
nurtured, it if can be made to grow into more interest and participation in 
the daily witness of our Church, we will be able to reach more people in 
our community and extend the love of Christ in the world." 

Then came this word of warning: while the parishioners feel generally 
"good" about the diocese, statistics show a contrary picture. "The statis- 
tics reveal a diocese that has been stagnant for the last eight years in 
terms of Church growth, Sunday School attendance, and income. 
. . . communicant strength . . . has only grown a total of 3% while the 
population of North Carolina has grown 12%." 

The report stated its concern this way: "Overall we believe the statis- 
tics are giving us a warning we had better heed. We recommend that the 
diocese establish a committee on Church growth which would develop a 
comprehensive program for evangelism for use in the local parish as well 
as evaluate the present growth potential of various parishes." 

After consultation during the summer of 1982, a Task Force of laity and 
clergy of the diocese was appointed by Bishop Estill. After a meeting with 
the 4th Province coordinator of Evangelism and Renewal, the Rev. J. Wil- 
liam Brown, and further planning, this Task Force met at the Conference 
Center the weekend of December 3 and 4 of 1982 with Bishop Estill and 



Convention Reports 245 



group consultant Catherine Collidge to consider the needs and processes 
of evangelism and renewal within our diocese. 



In exploring the facets of the subject, we have found that the two ac- 
tions of evangelism and renewal do not stand apart, but are an integral 
action of God through his church. This led us to a model of action which 
is circular in form and explained this way: the Body of Christ being 
sound, but being in part of human nature (that part being ourselves) re- 
quires a constant renewal through its head, Jesus Christ, in order to carry 
out his commission that we evangelize. The action of evangelizing draws 
more of God's chosen into the Body, who, being committed, require re- 
newal that the Body will be strengthened to go out to evangelize 
again. Thus, our definition of the action of evangelism is a desired and in- 
tentional conveyance of the Good News of Jesus Christ to that part of the 
world which we can reach. Simple enough. This also leaves us to trust 
that the power of God's Word conveyed is sufficient to, in the words of 
our Lord, "draw all people unto me." The action of renewal is the 
strengthening of personal and of corporate relationship with our Lord 
Jesus Christ. Another way I might put it is that renewal is the strengthen- 
ing of our faith. 



Further exploration by the Task Force was in the realm of the present 
activities within the diocese which relate to the subject of evangelism and 
renewal. This was done in the light of the principles set forth by Evange- 
lism and Renewal of the National Church and, more importantly, in the 
light of the scriptures and our understanding of our Lord's call to us to be 
disciples and apostles, about the business of his ministry. Such explora- 
tion has led to further studies, which are continuing though this Task 
Force feels it has completed its basic assignment in this report. Such stud- 
ies, which shall be of aid to the ongoing development of Evangelism and 
Renewal, are: 

1 . An examination of the different perspectives on what evangelsim is 
to our Church in North Carolina. 

2. Update of statistics on population/church growth over a longer peri- 
od of time as has already been presented and on a geographical basis. 

3. A study of expanding and declining churches of various sizes within 
this diocese, looking for common or uncommon factors. 



246 Diocese of North Carolina 



Within the context of our work arid time together, we found that evan- 
gelism and renewal is not a department or committee of its own, working 
by itself toward a goal; but is a major part of the Church's overall action 
of the sharing of God's Good News to all peoples. We find that the model 
of the three-legged stool is applicable: one leg is the proclaiming of God's 
Word, another is the education and training of God's people, and the 
other is the work of God's people in the world. Without the presence of 
all three very strong legs, the stool will topple. 

On the basis of the Report of the Committee on the State of the Church 
to the 1982 Annual Convention, we would conclude that there is a weak 
leg under our stool. There is no question as to the strength of diocesan ed- 
ucation and training; for we have a very capable Education and Training 
Committee. There is no question as to the strength of our Social Action 
Ministry, as we see the involvement of more and more churches in the 
physical care and feeding of Christ's lambs. But, despite taking into ac- 
count the efforts of many renewal groups within this diocese, we are not, 
to any appreciable degree, becoming a diocese of renewed people; and in 
turn, no, we are not seeing a reasonable growth within our Churches. 
While the 1982 State of the Church report gave the opinion that if the 
Church is not growing, it is dying, I would raise this question: if our scrip- 
tual recorded commission given by our Lord to bring others to his Body is 
not being fulfilled, does the true Church of Christ even exist within the 
confines of this institution? The given opinion that the people of our 
Church do not wish to grow is contrary to the purpose of the Church, and 
would speak to an inclusive self-satisfaction of its general membership. 
Archbishop William Temple has told all Anglicans that the "Church is 
the only institution that exists primarily for non-members." 

On the standing of this report, the Task Force recommends to this Con- 
vention the establishment of a Commission on Evangelism and Renewal 
for the purpose of the promotion of the renewal of the people of this dio- 
cese; the promotion of the Good News of God in our Lord, Jesus Christ; 
to give continuity to existing organizations that promote evangelism and 
renewal on the local, convocational, and diocesan levels; and, important- 
ly, to encourage all leadership, lay and clergy, to actively lead, guide, and 
direct the Church intentionally to the premiere work of its calling: to 
preach, to teach, to heal and feed the masses of people in human need 
through God's creative, active Word. 

And further, that the studies not yet completed be encouraged and ac- 
cepted by such Commission appointed. 



Convention Reports 247 



And further, that this Task Force be relieved of its charge, in order that 
such Commission appointed may hold total responsibility for the expan- 
sion of Evangelism and Renewal in the Diocese of North Carolina. 

The Rev. William Mclnnis

O MERCIFUL God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who is the 
Resurrection and the Life; in whom whosoever believeth, shall live, 
though he die; and whosoever liveth, and believeth in him, shall not die 
eternally; who also hath taught us, by his holy Apostle Saint Paul, not to 
be sorry, as men without hope, for those who sleep in him; We humbly 
beseech thee, O Father, to raise us from the death of sin unto the life of 
righteousness; that, when we shall depart this life, we may rest in him; 
and that, at the general Resurrection in the last day, we may be found ac- 
ceptable in thy sight; and receive that blessing which thy well-beloved 
Son shall then pronounce to all who love and fear thee, saying, Come, ye 
blessed children of my Father receive the kingdom prepared for you 
from the beginning of the world. Grant this, we beseech thee, O merciful 
Father, through Jesus Christ, our Mediator and Redeemer. Amen.

268 Diocese of North Carolina 

The Standing Committee's 

"Check-List" of Requirements 

Regarding Real Estate Transactions 

Under the canons, real estate or any interest therein may be conveyed, 
mortgaged, otherwise encumbered, leased (as Lessor) or otherwise alien- 
ated by the Trustees of the Diocese or by any Vestry of any congregation, 
or by the governing body of any Diocesan institution, only with the writ- 
ten consent of the Ecclesiastical Authority (normally the Bishop) who can 
only act with the advice and consent of The Standing Committee. To as- 
sist The Standing Committee and the Bishop in performing their duties in 
the usual transactions that occur, a seeker of such consents shall furnish 
in writing to the Bishop, with copy to the President of The Standing Com- 
mittee, at least one week prior to the meeting of The Standing Committee 
at which action is desired, such of the following information as is appro- 
priate to its particular transaction. 

SALE 

1. An authorizing resolution that identifies the property, sets forth the 
terms of sale including the price agreed or sought, gives the provi- 
sions of any listing with a real estate agent, and gives the reasons for 
the sale, including the application of the proceeds of sale and a 
statement that the property is not needed for the on-going opera- 
tions of the congregation or institution. 

2. If the sale contemplates any purchase money financing by the 
Seller, an explanation thereof with copies of pertinent documents 
that will be involved. 

3. Unless otherwise specifically authorized by The Standing Commit- 
tee, two independent appraisals by two separate competent ap- 
praisers who are not business associates and who are not members 
of or otherwise connected with any party involved in the transac- 
tion. 

LEASE (AS LESSOR) 

1. An authorizing resolution that identifies the property, sets forth the 
terms of the lease including the rental payments, term, renewal or 



Parochial Statistics 269 



cancellation options and other pertinent provisions, gives the 
reasons for the lease including the application of the rents to be re- 
ceived and a statement that the property is not otherwise needed 
during the lease period for the on-going operations of the congrega- 
tion or institution, and contains facts supporting the opinion of the 
Vestry or other governing body that the rent and other provisions of 
the lease are fair and adequate. 

2. A copy of the proposed lease. 

RIGHT OF WAY OR EASEMENT GRANT 

1. An authorizing resolution that identifies the property, sets forth the

Constitution 

Article I 
The Church in the Diocese of North Carolina accedes to and adopts the 
Constitution of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of 
America, as set forth in General Convention thereof, and acknowledges 
its authority accordingly. 

Article II 
Section 1. There shall be an annual Convention of the Church in this 
Diocese at such time and place as may be determined by the next prece- 
ding convention, or, in the event of no such determination, then at such 
time and place as may be fixed by the Ecclesiastical Authority and the 
Standing Committee. 

Section 2. The time and place of the annual Convention may be 
changed, or special conventions called, by the Ecclesiastical Authority of 
the diocese, subject to such canonical provisions as may hereafter be 
made. 

Section 3. Written notice of a special convention shall be given by the 
Secretary to every clergyman canonically resident in the Diocese and to 
the senior warden of every parish and every mission therein at least 60 
days before the date thereof. This notice shall specify the purpose for 
which the special convention is called, and no other business shall be in 
order except by unanimous consent of the delegates. (1982) 

Article III 
Section 1. The Convention shall be composed of the two orders, 
clerical and lay. 

Section 2. The Bishop of the Diocese, or in his absence, the Bishop 
Coadjutor, or any bishop in charge, as representing the Ecclesiastical Au- 
thority, shall, in the order named above, if present, preside at all 
meetings of the Convention and shall appoint all committees unless it be 
otherwise ordered. 

Section 3. Every clergyman of the Church who is canonically con- 
nected with the Diocese and who is resident therein shall be entitled to a 
seat in the Convention and to a vote therein. The restriction of residence 
as above required shall not apply to professors, tutors, or students in any 
recognized theological seminary of this Church, or college maintained 
and governed in part by the Diocese, or to any officers or members of the 
staff of the Executive Council, or to chaplains in the Armed Forces of the 



Constitution and Canons 279 



United States, or to clergymen in charge of congregations of this Diocese. 

Section 4. Each parish or mission in union with the Convention shall 
be entitled to be represented at its sessions by lay delegates whose 
number shall be determined in proportion to its communicant strength as 
specified by Canon. These delegates shall be chosen by the parish's 
vestry or the mission's mission committee from among its communicants 
in good standing who are 17 years old or older. In addition, each vestry or 
mission committee shall be entitled to elect a similar number of alternate 
delegates, subject to the same qualifications, who shall be authorized in 
the order of their election, to fill any vacancy that may occur in the 
delegation originally chosen. (1982) 

Section 5. When a mission desires to be admitted into union with the 
Convention, it shall follow the same procedure, so far as applicable, as 
that prescribed for the admission of a parish. (1982) 

Section 6. No person, clerical or lay, under ecclesiastical censure, 
publicly declared by a competent tribunal, shall be admissible to a seat in 
the Convention. No person shall be allowed to represent more than one 
parish or mission in the same convention. (1982) 

Section 7. If any parish or mission shall neglect or decline to appoint 
delegates, or if any of those appointed shall neglect or be prevented from 
attending, such parish or mission shall nevertheless be bound by the acts 
of the Convention. 

Article IV 

Section 1. The Convention shall be the sole judge of the election of its 
own members. It shall have power to adopt rules of order for its own 
government, elect officers and raise funds, and shall also have such other 
legislative powers as may be necessary and proper for the well-being of 
the Diocese. 

Section 2. The Convention shall have no power to pass any canon in- 
fringing the Episcopal Authority, or affecting the spiritual condition of 
the Diocese, against the express dissent of the Bishop stated at that or the 
ensuing annual Convention. This shall not prevent the Convention from 
offering independently of the Bishop resolutions of advice or inquiry, or 
from any proceedings necessary for the purpose of impeachment. 

Article V 
To constitute a quorum, the presence of one third of all the clergy en- 



280 Diocese of North Carolina 



titled to vote, and of one or more delegates from 20 parishes entitled to 
representation in the Convention, shall be necessary. Any lesser 
number shall be competent to receive reports and to recess or ad- 
journ. 

Article VI 

Section 1. Upon any question before the Convention, on the request of 
any clerical or lay delegate sustained by ten other delegates present and 
voting, the two orders shall vote separately. In all cases of a vote by 
orders each clerical member shall be entitled to one vote, and each lay 
delegate shall be entitled to one vote, and a concurrence of majorities of 
both orders shall be necessary to a decision. When no such division is 
called for, each member shall be entitled to one vote. (1982) 

Section 2. All elections shall be by ballot, unless otherwise unanimous- 
ly ordered. 

Article VII 

Section 1. The Convention shall annually elect a Secretary, who shall 
hold office until the next annual Convention, or until his successor is 
elected and qualified. 

Section 2. Should a vacancy occur in the office of Secretary, by death 
or otherwise, the unexpired term shall be filled by appointment by the 
Ecclesiastical Authority. 

Section 3. The Secretary shall perform the duties prescribed by canon, 
and such other services as may be required by the Ecclesiastical Authori- 
ty- 

Section 4. The Treasurer of the Diocese shall be annually elected by 
the Diocesan Council, upon the recommendation of the Ecclesiastical Au- 
thority, and shall have such powers and perform such duties as may be 
prescribed by canon, or required by the Ecclesiastical Authority. 

Section 5. The Secretary and the Treasurer shall be eligible to hold 
other offices in the Diocese either by election or appointment. 

Article VIII 

Section 1. The Standing Committee or Council of Advice to the Bishop, 
shall consist of five clergymen of the Diocese and four laymen who are 
communicants. The term of office shall be for three years, with three 
members being elected at each annual Convention. No member of the 
Standing Committee shall be eligible for re-election until one year shall 



Constitution and Canons 281 



have elapsed following the expiration of his term of office. 

Section 2. The Committee shall have power to fill any vacancy that 
may occur in its own body between the annual meetings of the Conven- 
tion. 

Section 3. When there is no Bishop, the Standing Committee shall be 
the Ecclesiastical Authority of the Diocese, and as such may invite the 
temporary services of other bishops, and, for due cause, may change the 
time or place of the annual meetings of the Convention. It may also sum- 
mon special conventions when there is no Bishop, and shall do so upon 
the call of one-third of the clergy of the Diocese, or of one-third of the 
parishes in union with the Convention, as appearing upon the lists of the 
Journal last before published. And although there be a Bishop, the Stand- 
ing Committee shall have power to call special conventions for the pur- 
pose of proceedings relative to his impeachment, and shall do so upon a 
similar requisition by the clergy or laity. 

Article IX 

Section 1. Any 60 or more communicants, 17 years of age or older, of 
the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States may organize 
themselves into a parish, and be received into union with the Conven- 
tion, by taking such steps as may be provided for by canon. And the Ec- 
clesiastical Authority of the Diocese may organize a mission in such man- 
ner as shall be provided by canon, in any part of the Diocese not included 
within the limits of an organized parish in union with the Convention. 

Section 2. It shall always be competent for the Ecclesiastical Authority 
of the Diocese, with the written consent of the rector of any parish, a 
copy of which shall be filed with the Secretary of the Diocese, to organize 
a mission within the limits of said parish. The ministers of such a mission 
shall be independent of the rector and responsible only to the Ec- 
clesiastical Authority. If the consent of the rector be denied, an appeal 
may be taken to the Bishop, whose decision, if with the advice and con- 
sent of the Standing Committee, shall be final. 

Section 3. In all parochial and mission elections only those shall be en- 
titled to vote who are communicants in good standing in this Church, 17 
years of age or older, members of such parish or mission, and who 
thereby consent to be governed by the Constitution and Canons of this 
Church as are or may be adopted by the General Convention, and the 
Convention of the Diocese pursuant thereto. 

Section 4. Any parish ceasing to be represented in the Convention for 



282 Diocese of North Carolina 



two successive years, or any parish resisting the authority of the Conven- 
tion, may be suspended from the right of representation, or its connec- 
tion with the Convention be dissolved, by a vote of a majority of all the 
clergy present and entitled to vote, and a majority of lay delegates present 
and entitled to vote. No such suspension or dissolution shall take place 
without previous inquiry by a committee appointed for the purpose, and 
a report upon the acts of the case; nor until after 30 days' notice to the 
rector or vestry, or in the case there be none then to a member of the 
parish in default. (1982) 

Section 5. Any parish which receives aid from the mission funds of the 
Diocese and does not, for two consecutive years, pay its proportion of the 
salary of the minister serving it, shall be deprived of the right to vote in 
the Convention until such arrears be paid or remitted by the Convention. 

Section 6. Any parish or mission which shall fail for three con- 
secutive years to pay its assessment for the Episcopal Maintenance 
Fund, or shall have failed to observe the conditions of Title I, Canon 7 
of the General Convention relative to the Church Pension Fund, shall 
be deprived of the right to vote in the Convention until such arrears be 
paid, or remitted by the Convention. 

Article X 

Section 1. Any presbyter regularly called to the charge of a parish 
and entering thereupon, shall during the time of such charge, be held 
to be the rector of said parish. 

Section 2. The rector is recognized as having, by virtue of his office, 
the exclusive regulation, under his canonical superiors, of all the 
spiritual concerns of the parish; as being entitled at all times to have 
access to the church building, and to open the same for the services or 
instruction of this Church, as he may deem proper; to call meetings of 
the vestry or congregation; when present, to preside in the same, and, 
in case of a tie, to cast the deciding vote. 

Article XI 
The Convention shall pass canons for the trial of clergymen. 

Article XII 

When a Bishop is to be elected the Convention shall vote by ballot 
and by orders; and a concurrence of a majority of all the clergy pre- 
sent and entitled to vote in the Convention and of a majority of lay 
delegates representing the parishes and missions in union with the 



Constitution and Canons 283 



Convention and who are present and entitled to vote shall be necessary 
to an election. (1982) 

Article XIII 
No new canon, or change in an existing canon, shall be considered 
or adopted, without first having been submitted to and reported on to the 
Convention by its Committee on Constitution and Canons. Nor shall the 
same be adopted on the day on which proposed, except by a two-thirds 
vote of those entitled to vote at that Convention. 

Article XIV 
This Constitution may be altered or amended only upon: 

(a) The concurrence of a majority of both orders present at the annual 
Convention at which the alteration is proposed. 

(b) The adoption of the proposed alteration or amendment at the next 
ensuing annual Convention by the concurrence of a majority of both 
orders present and entitled to vote. At this Convention the consideration 
of a proposed amendment may be postponed to the next annual Conven- 
tion by a vote of two-thirds of both orders present. (1982] 

Article XV 
All constitutional enactments shall take effect from and after the ad- 
journment of the Convention at which they shall have been ratified.

Canons 

Canon 1 
Members of the Convention

Special Convention, the Secretary shall apply to the Ecclesiastical 
Authority for a list of clergy entitled to seats, and shall receive such list at 
least 120 days before the opening of an annual Convention, or 60 days 
before a Special Convention. From this list the Secretary shall prepare, at 
least 90 days prior to the annual Convention and 30 days prior to a 
Special Convention, and publish, the official roll of the Convention, 
which roll shall be prima facie evidence of the right to seats therein. After 
the Secretary's publication of the roll, the Ecclesiastical Authority may 
certify to the Secretary additional clergy entitled by the Constitution to 
seat and vote in the Convention until one hour prior to the opening ses- 
sion of the Convention. (1983) 

Section 2. Laity. The clerks of the several parish vestries and missions 
electing lay delegates to the Convention shall furnish three certificates of 
these elections. One shall be handed to the delegates-elect, one shall be 
forwarded to the Secretary of the Convention and one shall be forwarded 
to the minister of the parish where the Convention is to be held. The lat- 
ter two shall be mailed at least 110 days before the opening session. From 
these certificates the Secretary shall prepare and publish at least 90 days 
before the opening of the Convention the roster of lay delegates to that 
Convention. The Secretary shall not insert any name upon the roll 
without the evidence of one of these certificates or an amended cer- 
tificate signed by the rector or clerk of the vestry of the parish or by the 
priest in charge or clerk of the mission, submitted to him not later than 
one hour prior to the opening session of the Convention, unless specially 
directed to by the Convention upon recommendation of its Committee on 
Credentials. Defective or doubtful certificates shall be laid aside, to be 
acted on after the Convention shall have organized. (1983) 

Each congregation (parish or mission) shall be represented in the Con- 
vention in accordance with the average of its communicants in good 
standing, as contained in the last three annual statistical reports printed 
in the Journal as follows:

rized by Section 2, above. (1983) 

b) Should the communicant strength of a congregation at any time re- 
quire that it elect a greater or smaller number of lay delegates than 
initially prescribed, the Secretary of the Convention, not later than 
200 days prior to the Convention at which the new representation is 
first to take effect, shall notify the parish or mission of that fact, spe- 
cifying in the notice which delegates, if any, are to be elected for 
terms of less than three years in order to maintain so far as possible 
the divison among the Convention's lay membership prescribed by 
the Constitution. Upon the expiration of the initial terms required 
under this subsection, each lay delegate from the affected parish or 
mission shall be elected for a term of three years. (1983) 

c) The provisions of this section shall become effective upon the adop- 
tion of Section 4 of Article III of the Constitution as initially propos- 
ed by the Committee on Structure and Organization at the 167th an- 
nual Convention. (1983)

Diocese in its annual budget, and one twelfth of each such assessment 
shall be paid to the diocesan Treasurer monthly, on or before the 25th 
day of the month for which it is payable. In the event any parish or mis- 
sion shall, for good reason, believe that it cannot meet its assessment or 
that the amount of the assessment should be altered, it shall lodge an ap- 
peal with the Diocesan Council on or before December 31 of the year 
prior to which the assessment shall take effect. The Diocesan Council 
shall provide an opportunity for such appeals to be heard prior to the 
meeting of the annual Convention, and the Diocesan Council shall have 



302 Diocese of North Carolina 



power to modify the scale of assessments on the basis of such appeals. 
The Diocesan Council shall recommend the budget for the support of 
the Episcopate and for the current expenses of the Diocese to the annual 
Convention, shall report the assessments made on the parishes and mis- 
sions for the support of such budget, and shall report any appeals and ac- 
tion taken thereon to the Convention. The Convention shall have the 
power to act on this budget and to make any modification in the expen- 
ditures budgeted or the assessments imposed which, in its discretion, it 
deems wise. 

Section 3. Every parish and mission in the Diocese shall report to the 
Diocesan Council not later than December 31 of each year the action it 
proposes to take with respect to the quota apportioned to it for the sup- 
port of all diocesan programs and obligations other than the support of 
the Episcopate and current expenses of the Diocese, and one twelfth of 
the amount accepted shall be paid to the diocesan Treasurer monthly. On 
the basis of such acceptances from the parishes and missions, the 
Diocesan Council shall recommend a final budget to the annual Conven- 
tion, showing the expenditures recommended in the tentative budget, the 
quota apportioned to the parishes and missions, the acceptances from 
each parish and mission, and the expenditures recommended on the 
basis of such acceptances. The Convention shall have the power to act on 
this budget and to make any modification which, in its discretion, it 
deems wise. 

Section 4. The Diocesan Council shall have power to expend all 
moneys provided in each budget for the purposes therein specified, to ex- 
pend any surplus received in any years over and above diocesan and na- 
tional obligations, and to amend the budget, or either of them, when in its 
judgment, a changed situation with respect to revenues received or 
obligations incurred makes a change necessary or prudent.

Missions 

Section 1. Definition. A mission is a congregation of communicants 17

States of America that has been organized under the Constitution and 
canons of this Diocese, but which is not recognized as a parish. (1983) 

Section 2. Establishment of Missions. Missions may be established out- 
side the neighborhood of existing parishes by the Bishop at his discretion. 
Pending the selection of a mission committee under the provisions of Sec- 
tion 3 of this canon, the Bishop shall appoint a mission committee. With 
the approval of the Bishop a mission so established shall be admitted into 
union with the Convention upon application of the mission and by vote 
of the Convention. (1983) 

A mission in the form of a special ministry may be established by the 
Ecclesiastical Authority of the Diocese, acting with the advice of the 
Standing Committee, for such period of time and in such places as may 
be designated by him. (1983) 

Missions may also be established within the neighborhood of an al- 
ready existing parish by the rector of the parish with the consent of the 
Bishop. Missions so established shall be accounted an integral part of the 
parish to which they belong until such time as they may be received by 
the annual Convention as missions in union with the Convention. And 
every mission so established shall, within five years of its establishment 
make application to the Convention of the Diocese to be received as a 
mission in union with the Convention. (1983) 

In cases where a parish is supporting a mission within the parish, the 
Diocesan Council, in determining the missionary quota of that parish, 
shall give due regard to the expense borne by the parish in support of the 
mission.

ing by a majority vote from among the members of the mission 17 years 
of age or older who are communicants in good standing of the Protestant 
Episcopal Church, a mission committee of not fewer than three nor more 
than nine persons, who shall hold office until the next annual meeting or 
until their successors are duly elected and qualified. The congregation

either six or nine persons, by electing one-third in number to serve one 
year, one-third in number to serve two years, and one-third in number to 
serve three years; and thereafter annually electing from its qualified 
members who have not served on the committee during the past year 
one-third of said committee, whose term of office shall be for three years. 
A senior and a junior warden shall be elected annually by the committee 
from among its members. If there shall be a minister in charge, the senior 
warden shall be elected upon his nomination. The committee shall also 
elect a clerk and a treasurer, who need not be members of the committee 
and whose terms of office shall be for one year or until their successors 
are elected. The names of these officers shall be reported promptly to the 
Diocesan Council. If a mission should fail to elect a mission committee 
and necessary officers, the Bishop may appoint such committee and of- 
ficers as he deems necessary. (1983)

Canon 22 

(old no. 21) 

Parish Meetings, Vestries, and Wardens 

Section 1. Fan's/2 Meetings. 

(a) Annual Meeting. An annual meeting of the members qualified to 
vote in a parish shall be held on the first Monday in Advent unless 
the vestry of the parish designates some other date for the required 
annual meeting. 

(b) Other Parish Meetings. Upon the call of the vestry, a meeting of the 
members qualified to vote in a parish may be held at any time. 

(c) Persons Qualified to Vote in Parish Meetings. A communicant mem- 
ber of a parish who is 17 years old or older and in good standing in 
this Church may vote in any meeting of that parish when he is pre- 



310 Diocese of North Carolina 



sent, in accordance with the provisions of Article IX, Section 3 of 
the Constitution of this Diocese. (1975) 

(d) By-Laws. For the orderly conduct of parish meetings, for the adop- 
tion of a rotating vestry system as authorized by Section 2 of this 
canon, and for the election of members of the vestry, by-laws not 
inconsistent with the Constitution and Canons of the Diocese may 
be adopted by any parish meeting. (1975) 

(e) Voting. Motions, resolutions, elections, and all other matters pre- 
sented to a parish meeting for vote shall be decided by a majority of 
the qualified members present and voting. 

Section 2. Vestries. 

(a) Size and Composition. A vestry shall be composed of not fewer than 
three nor more than 15 members of the parish who are 17 years old 
or older and who are communicants in good standing of the Protes- 
tant Episcopal Church. 

(b) Vestry Plan One. At each annual parish meeting a vestry shall be 
elected who shall hold office until the next annual parish meeting 
or until their successors are duly elected. 

(c) Vestry Plan Two. As an alternative to Vestry Plan One, a parish hav- 
ing 60 or more members who are 17 years old or older may adopt a 
rotating vestry system. At the first election following the adoption 
of a rotating system, which shall be held at the annual parish 
meeting, one-third of the members of the vestry are elected to serve 
for one year, one-third for two years, and one-third for three years. 
Thereafter, at the annual parish meeting, one-third of the vestry 
shall be elected from among those who have not served on the 
vestry during the past year, except that those appointed during the 
past year to fill unexpired terms of one year or less may, under pro- 
visions of parish by-laws, be made eligible for election to a full term 
(1977), and the terms of those so elected shall be for three years. A 
parish having 100 or more members who are 17 years old or older 
may include in its rotating system a provision that no retiring 
member of the vestry shall be eligible for re-election until a 
specified period of time, not to exceed five years, has elapsed 
following the expiration of that person's term on the vestry. 

(d) Vestry Plan Three. As an alternate to Vestry Plans One and Two, a 
parish having more than 60 members who are 17 years of age or 
older may adopt a two-year rotating system, as follows: At the first 



Constitution and Canons 311 



election after such a system is adopted, one-half of the members of 
the vestry shall be elected for one year and one-half for two years. 
Thereafter, at the annual meeting, one-half of the vestry shall be 
elected from among those who have not served on the vestry dur- 
ing the past year, and the terms of those so elected shall be for two 
years. Persons appointed during the past year to fill unexpired 
terms of one year or less, under provisions of parish by-laws, may 
be made eligible for election for a full term, and the terms of those 
so elected shall be for two years. Should a parish vote to change the 
Vestry Plan Two to Vestry Plan Three, the change shall be effected 
by electing for two-year terms those who are to take the place of 
persons whose terms of office had been three years. A parish hav- 
ing 100 or more members who are 17 years old or older may in- 
clude in its rotating vestry system a provision that no retiring 
member of the vestry shall be eligible for re-election until a 
specified period of time, not to exceed five years, has elapsed 
following the expiration of that person's term on the vestry. (1980) 

(e) Filling Vestry Vacancies. 

(1) In case of a vacancy on a vestry by reason of death, resignation, 
or other cause, the remaining members of the vestry may fill the va- 
cancy from among those eligible to serve under the provisions of 
this canon. 

(2) A person elected to fill a vacancy on a vestry shall hold office un- 
til the expiration of the term of the person whose office he fills. 

(f) By-Laws. For the orderly conduct of its meetings and other business, 
a vestry may adopt by-laws not inconsistent with the Constitution 
and Canons of the Diocese. A copy of the by-laws and each amend- 
ment thereto adopted by each parish, certified by the secretary, 
shall be filed within 30 days thereafter with the Ecclesiastical 
Authority of the Diocese for approval. The Ecclesiastical Authority 
may, with the advice and consent of the Standing Committee, dis- 
approve any by-law which is inconsistent with the Constitution or 
Canons of the Diocese or of the General Convention of the Protes- 
tant Episcopal Church. 

(g) Nomination and Election Procedures. 

(1) Nominations of persons to be elected to a vestry may be receiv- 
ed at an annual parish meeting in accordance with by-laws adopted 
by the parish. By-laws governing the nomination of persons for 
election to the vestry may provide for taking preferential ballots 
prior to the time of the annual parish meeting, but if this is done, 
the by-laws shall provide that the number of nominees presented 



312 Diocese of North Carolina 



for election at the annual parish meeting shall be at least twice the 
number of positions to be filled on the vestry at that meeting. 

(2) A majority of those present and voting in an annual parish meet- 
ing shall be necessary to elect a member of the vestry. Nominees 
receiving a majority shall be declared elected. If additional ballots 
are required, the nominees to be voted on shall be limited to twice 
the number of positions remaining to be filled and, within that 
number, shall be those not elected on the previous ballot who re- 
ceived the highest number of votes. However, should there be a tie 
vote for the last position on any subsequent ballot, the number of 
nominees to be placed on that ballot shall be increased to include 
the two or more nominees whose votes were tied. 

(3) Nominations and elections for members of the vestry may be by 
paper ballot or by voice vote in accordance with the by-laws adopt- 
ed by a parish meeting as provided in Section 1 of this canon. ( 1975] 

Section 3. Wardens. 

(a) Election. Each vestry shall annually elect from among its own num- 
ber a Senior and a Junior Warden, who shall be communicants in 
good standing of the Protestant Episcopal Church. The vestry shall 
elect the Senior Warden upon nomination by the rector unless there 
is no rector, in which case the election shall proceed without his 
nomination. If a vacancy occurs in the office of Senior or Junior 
Warden, a successor shall be nominated and elected in the same 
manner. 

(b) Duties. In the absence of the rector, the wardens shall preside in all 
meetings of the vestry or congregation, in order of their official se- 
niority. As representatives of the vestry, they shall (subject to the 
vestry's directions and consistent with the rights of the rector) have 
charge of the church building, and they shall see that it is kept from 
all uses inconsistent with the doctrine or discipline of the Protestant 
Episcopal Church and, so far as possible, in good repair, as becomes 
the house of God. The wardens shall see that the church is prepared 
for public worship and that order is preserved during that worship; 
that suitable books are provided for the services, vestments for the 
clergy, and, when necessary, the elements for the Holy Commu- 
nion. 

Section 4. Treasurer. In the absence of any other appointment, the 
Junior Warden shall act as treasurer of the parish. 



Constitution and Canons 313 



Section 5. Vestry Meetings in Certain Cases. Should the rector refuse to 
call a meeting of the vestry and, in the opinion of the wardens or a ma- 
jority of the vestry, such a meeting would be of importance, the wardens 
or any three members of the vestry may call a vestry meeting. In such a 
case, however, the rector shall be notified of the time and place of the 
called meeting of the Vestry. 



Canon 23 
Legal Powers of the Vestry 

Section 1. The vestry shall be the trustees of the parish; shall have 
charge of all the secular concerns thereof; shall hold the property belong- 
ing thereto, and shall be authorized to collect, invest or disburse its funds. 

Section 2. Before any vestry, trustee, or other body, authorized by civil 
or canon law, to hold, manage, or administer the real property of any 
parish, mission, congregation or institution, shall be authorized to sell, 
mortgage, or otherwise convey or encumber any real property held by it 
or him, in trust for such parish, mission, congregation, or institution, it or 
he shall obtain the written consent of the Bishop, acting with the advice 
and consent of the Standing Committee of the Diocese. Upon obtaining 
this consent, the vestry, if such real property be held by it, may authorize 
the wardens of the parish, as the officials thereof, to execute such con- 
veyances as may be necessary or convenient for the purpose, and in- 
struments so executed by the wardens shall be of the same force and ef- 
fect as if executed individually by the members of the vestry. In such in- 
struments, a recital by the wardens of their authorization to act on behalf 
of the vestry, and of the fact that the written consent of the Bishop, acting 
with advice and consent of the Standing Committee of the Diocese, had 
been obtained, shall be prima facie true, and, in the absence of notice or 
knowledge to the contrary, may be relied upon by the grantee or grantees 
in such instruments. 



Canon 24 

(old no. 36) 

Junior or Associate Vestry 

Section 1. The Congregation of each parish and mission in the Diocese 
shall have the authority at any regular annual meeting, notice of which 
shall include a copy of such proposed action, to create and elect a junior 
or associate vestry or committee, prescribing the number, not exceeding 
six, qualifications, term of office, and defining the scope of authority del- 



314 Diocese of North Carolina 



egated to such junior or associate vestry or committee. If a junior or asso- 
ciate vestry is established, all matters which have been or may be placed 
specifically within the power and authority of the regular vestry or 
committee of parishes and missions by the Constitution and Canons of 
the General Convention of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United 
States or by the Constitution and Canons of the Diocese of North Caro- 
lina, shall remain in the sole and exclusive jurisdiction of the vestry or 
committee. 

Section 2. Any regular vestry or committee of a parish or mission 
may, in its discretion, invite the junior or associate vestry to meet jointly 
with it, participate in discussion of all matters and vote on all matters 
coming before the vestry or committee, except matters of contract, real 
property, trusts committed to the vestry or committee, or other matters 
concerning which minors are not authorized to act under the laws of 
North Carolina. 

Section 3. The congregation at any annual meeting shall have the au- 
thority to change, modify, amend or rescind any action theretofore grant- 
ed under the provisions of this canon. 



Canon 25 
(old no. 24) 

Status of Parishes and Missions 

Section 1 . The Bishop and Standing Committee shall annually make a 
survey of the parishes and missions of the Diocese. If, after any survey, 
they shall find that a parish does not meet the standards set in Canon 21, 
Section 3, they shall notify the parish that unless it meets the aforesaid

the parish. Not earlier than six months nor later than three months before 
the termination of the rector's tenure, the parties may, by written instru- 
ment, renew the relationship for a specified period of time. Subsequent 
renewals may be agreed upon in the same manner. The failure of either 
party to enter into an agreement to renew such a relationship at least 
three months prior to the expiration of a specified term shall constitute 
notice to the other party that the pastoral relationship will not be renew- 
ed. This canon is enacted pursuant to the authority contained in Title III,

RULES OF ORDER 

I. ORDER OF BUSINESS. 

The Order of Business, at the annual Convention, or any Special Con- 
vention, shall be in the discretion of the Bishop, or the presiding officer, 
subject to the right of the Convention to make any change in the Order of 
Business prescribed under the authority hereof. 

II. Any of these rules of order may be suspended by simple majority 
vote of the Convention, except those rules which specify a larger majori- 
ty for a specific action. Any such rule may be suspended upon the affir- 
mative vote of two-thirds of the delegates present and voting. (1983) 

III. Unless otherwise ordered, the presiding officer shall appoint all Dioc- 
esan Commissions and Convention Committees, and he shall refer to an 
appropriate Diocesan Commission or Convention Committee for consi- 
deration and report all resolutions introduced for Convention action ex- 
cept those which already accompany the reports of Convention Commit- 
tees and Diocesan Commissions. (1983) 

IV. After the President has taken the chair no member shall continue 
standing, except to address the Chair. 

V. Speakers shall address the Chair, and shall confine themselves to the 
point in debate. 

VI. No motion shall be considered unless seconded, and, if required, 
reduced to writing. 

VII. When the President is putting any question, the members shall 
continue in their seats, and shall not hold any private discourse. 

VIII. When a question is under consideration, no motion shall be re- 
ceived, unless to lay upon the table, to postpone to a certain time, to post- 
pone indefinitely, to commit, to amend, or to divide; and motions for any 
of these purposes shall have precedence in the order herein named. The 
motions to lay on the table and to adjourn shall always be in order, and 
shall be decided without debate; and of these the motion to adjourn shall 
take precedence. 

IX. If the question under debate contains several distinct propositions, 
the same shall be divided at the request of any member, and a vote taken 
separately, except that a motion to strike out and insert shall be indivisi- 
ble. 

X. All amendments shall be considered in the order in which they are 
moved. 



330 Diocese of North Carolina 



When a proposed amendment .is under consideration, a motion to 
amend the same may be made. No amendment to a second amendment 
shall be in order. But when an amendment to an amendment is under 
consideration, a substitute for the whole matter may be received. No 
proposition on a subject different from the one under consideration shall 
be received under color of a substitute. 

XL In a vote by orders the individual votes of the clergy and laity shall 
be taken separately. A majority of affirmative votes in both orders shall 
be necessary to any decision on any vote by orders. 

In any vote by orders, upon the request of any two members of the 
clergy who do not serve the same congregation (parish or mission), or any 
two lay delegates representing different congregations, the vote shall be 
by roll call of the clergy and lay delegates. The votes of the lay delegates 
shall be announced by the chairman of the delegation when the name of 
that church is called. The delegation shall be polled upon request of any 
member thereof . (1982) 

XII. A question once decided shall stand as the action of the Conven- 
tion and shall not be drawn again into debate. A motion to reconsider any 
vote shall be in order only on the same or succeeding day to that on 
which the vote is taken, except that a vote or question may be recon- 
sidered at any time by the consent of two-thirds of the Convention. 

XIII. The reports of all committees shall be in writing, and shall be re- 
ceived without motion for acceptance, unless recommitted. All reports 
recommending or requiring any action or expression of opinion by the 
Convention shall be accompanied by a corresponding resolution. 

XIV. All questions of order shall be decided by the Chair without 
debate, but any member may appeal from such decision. And on such 
appeal no member shall speak more than once without leave. 

XV. No member shall be absent from the sessions of the Convention 
without leave, or unless he be unable to attend. 

XVI. When the Convention is about to rise, every member shall keep 
his seat until the President leaves the chair. 

XVII. On motion duly put and carried, the Convention may resolve 
itself into a Committee of the Whole, with or without closed doors, for 
the purpose of discussing such subjects as may be approved by the Con- 
vention. 

The Bishop may select and announce subjects for discussion: Provided, 
that if the motion to go into a Committee of the Whole has specified the 
subject to be discussed, that subject shall first be disposed of. 



Constitution and Canons 331 



XVIII. 

(a) No nomination shall be received unless the person to be nominated 
has indicated assent thereto. Nominations for election by the annual Con- 
vention, unless otherwise provided for, may be submitted in writing to 
the Secretary of the Convention at least 40 days before the opening ses- 
sion thereof by delegates eligible to vote in that Convention. Any nomina- 
tion received by the Secretary after the specified date shall be returned to 
the nominator and may be submitted from the floor of the Convention in 
accordance with the provisions of this rule of order. At the first business 
session of the Convention the presiding officer shall call for nominations 
from the floor, at which time the Secretary shall read the names of all 
persons whose nominations he has received at least 40 days before the 
opening of the Convention, after which additional nominations may be 
received from the floor, provided that any such nomination is seconded 
by two delegates other than the nominating delegate, each of the 
seconders being from a parish or mission other than that of the 
nominator and different from that of each other. Each nomination, 
whether by voice from the floor or in writing, shall be accompanied by a 
brief biography of the nominee on a form prepared by the Commission 
on Dispatch of Business and made available by the Secretary of the Con- 
vention to all delegates who are properly certified to him. The informa- 
tion to be included on the biographical form (to be signed by the 
nominator) shall include at least the following: Nominee's name, age, ad- 
dress and home congregation, occupation, and prior as well as present 
parochial and diocesan offices. (1983) 

(b) The names and biographies of all persons nominated in writing to 
the Secretary at least 40 days before the opening session of the Conven- 
tion shall be given by him to the deans of the convocations and shall be 
included in the advance materials distributed by the Secretary to mem- 
bers of the Convention prior to the meetings of each convocation which 
are to be held not later than 10 days prior to the Convention. The Secre- 
tary shall also post the biographical forms delivered to him in a conspicu- 
ous place in or adjacent to the room in which the Convention meets so 
that they may be seen throughout the Convention session by all del- 
egates. (1983) 

(c) All nominations shall be reported to the Convention by the Secre- 
tary in the form of an official ballot on which the names of nominees for 
the designated office shall be printed in alphabetical order, with space 
opposite each name in which to indicate a choice, and with instruction as 
to the number of nominees to be voted for, and the manner of marking 
the ballots. 



332 Diocese of North Carolina 



(d) All elections, unless otherwise' provided for, shall be by majority of 
the votes cast on the ballot. 

(e) Nominees receiving a majority vote, as herein defined, on any ballot 
shall be declared elected. If subsequent ballots be required the nominees 
to be voted on shall be limited to the number remaining equal to twice 
the number of offices to be filled, who received on the preceding ballot 
the highest number of votes, exclusive of those declared elected. 

(f) After the election of Deputies to the General Convention or dele- 
gates to other meetings, the alternates for these deputies or delegates 
shall in like manner be elected from among those already nominated for 
deputies or delegates. 

XIX. Resolutions to be acted on at the annual Convention shall be sub- 
mitted to the Secretary of the Convention on or before the 40th day pre- 
ceding the opening date of the Convention. Resolutions so submitted 
shall be referred to the appropriate Convention Committee or Diocesan 
Commission by the Bishop, and the texts thereof shall be included in the 
advance materials distributed by the Secretary of the Convention to the 
members of the Convention prior to the convocation meetings that take 
place at least 10 days prior to the Convention. Resolutions submitted to 
the Secretary later than specified shall be returned to the introducer with- 
out action. Resolutions may be introduced during the Convention but 
may be acted upon only as follows: If introduced in the first business ses- 
sion of the Convention, the question before the Convention shall be 
whether the resolution shall be considered. Upon the affirmative vote of 
two-thirds of the delegates, the resolution shall be referred to an appro- 
priate Convention Committee or Diocesan Commission for study and re- 
port to that Convention. Such resolutions that fail to receive the required 
vote as well as all resolutions introduced after the close of the first busi- 
ness session of the Convention shall be retained by the Secretary and re- 
ferred by the Bishop to the appropriate Diocesan Commission or Con- 
vention Committee of the next Convention for consideration and report 
to that Convention. This rule shall not apply to resolutions of courtesy or 
appreciation, nor to resolutions which come before the Convention as 
parts of reports of Diocesan Commissions or Convention Committees.

Special Rule of Order 



[To be effective upon the adoption of the proposed amendments to Sec- 
tion 4 of Article III of the Constitution and Section 3 of Canon 1 , for use in 
the election of delegates to the 169th Annual Convention in 1985.] 

Initial terms for lay delegates to the Convention under the provisions of 
Article III, Section 4, of the Constitution and Canon 1 shall be determined 
by the following rules: Not later than 200 days prior to the 169th annual 
Convention, the Secretary of the Convention shall notify each parish and 
mission in union with the Convention of the number of delegates it is en- 
titled to elect under Canon 1, Section 2, and for what terms as set out and 
illustrated below: 

1 . The congregations entitled to elect one delegate shall be divided by 
the Secretary into three groups of approximately the same number of 
congregations; the vestry or mission committee of each congregation in 
one such group shall be notified to elect and it shall elect its delegate for a 
1-year term; that of each congregation in the second such group shall be 
notified to elect and it shall elect its delegate for a 2-year term; and that of 
each congregation in the third such group shall be notified to elect and it 
shall elect its delegate for a 3-year term. 

2. The congregations entitled to elect two delegates shall be divided by 
the Secretary into three groups of approximately the same number of 
congregations; the vestry or mission committee of each congregation in

a 1-year term and one for a 2-year term; that of each congregation in the 
second such group shall be notified to elect and it shall elect one delegate 
for a 2-year term and one for a 3-year term; and that of each congregation 
of the third such group shall be notified to elect and it shall elect one dele- 
gate for a 1-year term and one for a 3-year term. 

3. The vestries or mission committees of the congregations entitled to 
elect three delegates shall be notified to elect and they shall elect one del- 
egate for a 1-year term, one for a 2-year term, and one for a 3-year term. 

4. The congregations entitled to elect four delegates shall be divided by 
the Secretary into three groups of approximately the same number of 
congregations; the vestry or mission committee of each congregation in 
one such group shall be notified to elect and it shall elect two delegates 
for 1-year terms, one for a 2-year term, and one for a 3-year term; that of 



334 Diocese of North Carolina 



each congregation in the second such group shall be notified to elect and 
it shall elect one delegate for a 1-year term, two for 2-year terms, and one 
for a 3-year term; and that of each congregation in the third such group 
shall be notified to elect and it shall elect one delegate for a 1-year term, 
one for a 2-year term, and two for 3-year terms. 

5. The congregations entitled to elect five delegates shall be divided by

shall be notified to elect and it shall elect one delegate for a 1-year term, 
two for 2-year terms, and two for 3-year terms. 

6. The vestries or mission committees of the congregations entitled to 
elect six delegates shall be notified to elect and they shall elect two dele- 
gates for 1-year terms, two for 2-year terms, and two for 3-year terms. 

(Note: This Special Rule was adopted in its entirety in 1983.] 



Illustration 

To illustrate how initial delegate terms will be determined under Ca- 
non 1, Section 3, assume that there are 116 congregations in union with 
the Convention. Assume also that by virtue of communicant strength 25 
of them are each entitled to elect 1 lay delegate to the Convention, that 36 
are each entitled to elect 2 delegates, that 27 are each entitled to elect 3 
delegates, that 15 are each entitled to elect 4 delegates, that 7 are each en- 
titled to elect 5 delegates, and that 6 are each entitled to elect 6 delegates. 
In such a situation the Secretary of the Convention would divide each of 
these 6 categories or classes of congregations into 3 groups of approxi- 
mately equal numbers of congregations and assign initial delegate terms 
as shown in the chart on the following page:

Thus, in the situation assumed, the Convention would consist of 309 lay 
delegates, 103 of them serving 1-year terms, 102 of them serving 2-year 
terms, and 104 of them serving 3-year terms. Thereafter, as the initial 
terms expire, each delegate would be elected for a 3-year term.

of Business, reported that the Greensboro churches had invited the Con- 
vention to hold its 169th Annual Meeting in that city on January 24-26,

and the resolution adopted (see page 249). Then on her motion duly 
passed, the resolution on Land Stewardship was adopted (see page 250). 

Mrs. Harris then moved the adoption of the resolution on Nicaragua.

r 



Journal of Proceedings 75 



As one of your foreign missionaries serving in the alien land 
of Washington, D.C., I send greetings and thanks for the ten 
years of your support and encouragement in the work of 
building stronger parishes. The Alban Institute rededicates 
itself to working with all of you who care about your parishes. 
We do believe that your parish is an essential channel through 
which the work of our Lord Jesus Christ becomes incarnate in 
your life and, through you, in the life of your community. 
May God be with you!

Address of the Bishop 

to the 168th Convention 
of the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina 



Vermont Royster, a distinguished resident of Chapel Hill, and the 
retired Senior Editor of The Wall Street Journal has written an 
autobiography entitled, My Own, My Country's Time (Algonquin Books, 
1983). In it he quotes Kierkegaard, who wrote: "Life must be lived for- 
ward; it can only be understood backwards." 



Such is, I think, the case. You and I are the beneficiaries of all that has 

gone before. We share a rich and varied past. During the year just ended, 
the Diocesan Council followed my recommendation and contracted with 
an archivist to continue the task, just begun when Bishop Fraser's papers 
were collected, of preserving and ordering our past. It is an immense job 
at the start. Still, Michelle Francis has made a good beginning, and it is 
my hope that this Convention will agree with me and with the Council as 
to the importance of this work and continue it. In that way we can keep 
"understanding backwards." Every time I walk into the Diocesan House, 
past the portraits of our bishops, I am reminded of our heritage, and we 
are quickly accumulating archives that will assure the preservation of 
what has gone before. 

We are seeing, as we begin this Convention, the fruits of the labor of 
our Structure and Organization Commission, put into effect last year. The 
Council members will attest to the fact that they are much more involved 
in the life and work of the Diocese, and that the lines of responsibility are 
clearer and stronger than they have been for some time. The format of 
this Convention bears witness to the value of those proposals and, if we 
pass the proposed changes, will make for a more informed and involved 
representation from our congregations. I certainly endorse those pro- 
posals and urge you to adopt those which are Constitutional changes and 
which must be voted upon again at this Convention. 

A greater emphasis upon Christian Stewardship is still one of our most 
pressing needs. While I take great pride in the fact that this past year we 
had 100% receipts from every congregation in terms of their assessments 



82 Diocese of North Carolina 



and accepted quotas, it still concerns me that there are some of our con- 
gregations which have not been able to accept their full quotas for 1984. 1 
call on every congregation to work hard at Christian Stewardship and to 
avail themselves of all of the help at hand. Our Stewardship Commission, 
under the leadership of The Reverend Glenn Busch, has done a fine job 
in its initial year as a Commission, and our Diocesan Stewardship Con- 
ference was well attended, but there is still much to be done. I have 
brought on our Diocesan Staff this past year, The Venerable Neff Powell. 
He is, as most of you know, our Archdeacon and Program Director. In 
that capacity, stewardship and Christian education are two of his special 
interests and responsibilities. I have asked him to work with those con- 
gregations which were unable to meet their quotas, and he is already do- 
ing so in several situations. I am expanding the membership of this Com- 
mission, and have appointed a smaller group, at their request, in the area 
of Planned Giving. John Thomas, of St. Stephen's, Durham, has agreed to 
chair this group. We also sponsored a conference on Planned Giving in 
the past year, and will do so again. 

Archdeacon Powell is one of two new Staff Persons whose first Con- 
vention this is. The other is John Justice, our Communications Officer 
and Editor of The Communicant. You have, in your packets, a sample of 
John's first editorial work, and I hope you are as pleased with it as I am. 
Our newly formed Communications Commission, headed by The 
Reverend Robert Sessum, assisted me in finding John, and will continue 
to act as a support group for him. 

Letty Magdanz, who began her work as our Business Administrator at 
last year's Convention, has been all over the diocese this year. She is, I 
believe, doing an excellent job, and her additional experience as a CPA 
and tax specialist has been of great value to a number of our clergy and 
their families. She has sponsored a Convocational Treasurers' Con- 
ference with The Reverend Peter Lee, Dean of the Central Convocation, 
and we plan to hold similar Conferences in the other four Convocations 
this year. She and our Staff also sponsored a Secretaries' Conference this 
year at the Diocesan House. Forty-eight secretaries from all over the 
Diocese came and spent the day together swapping skills and being given 
orientation to the Diocese's resources. We also held a Conference for 
Senior Wardens, and plan to make than an annual affair. 

The Reverend Lex Mathews continues his fine work as our Director of 
Christian Social Ministries. His report, always a highlight at our conven- 
tions, will show that we have expanded our outreach programs and that 
there are plans to do more. I heartily support this work both here and, 



Address of the Bishop 83 



where we can do so, abroad. Lex went with me to visit our proposed 
Companion Diocese, Belize, and he has already made connections with 
needs there and possible solutions here. We are proud of St. Philip's, 
Durham, which became one of the first dozen national "Jubilee Centers" 
in the country. Despite what one thinks of Hunger Commissions and 
studies, we know there are people who need to be fed. I tend to agree 
with Representative Mickey Leland of Texas, who said, when told of the 
study on hunger, "I respectfully submit that we ought to spend the next 
three months developing methods of feeding the hungry, rather than try- 
ing to find them." We in this Diocese know where they are, and we 
know their need is urgent. So too, I believe that our private voluntary 
help is needed, urgently, but an increase in that voluntary aid must not 
be matched by a decrease in public aid. The current need is too great. 

The Christ the King Center, recently noted in The Communicant, con- 
tinues to address the needs of the inner city and of a changing and 
sometimes decaying neighborhood in our largest city, Charlotte. Brother 
Richard Banks is the Director of that work and a Board representative of 
the Charlotte churches assists him. 

Our other Institutions continue to provide a varied ministry. The 
Thompson Home and The Episcopal Child Care Services are expanding 
their programs and their services constantly. The Penick Home is also 
considering an expansion program of ambitious proportions to meet the 
needs of the aging and to respond to their growing waiting list. I hope the 
diocese will support their bond program and assist in this much-needed 
expansion. We are extremely fortunate in having The Reverend Philip 
Brown as our Executive Director there and John Powell, at the Thomp- 
son Home. A large number of lay persons and clergy also serve on those 
boards and these are important arms of our outreach and social ministry. 
Our commitment to a ministry to the deaf in our diocese remains a top 
concern. This continues with The Reverend Barry Kramer (newly mar- 
ried to Carolyn!). Thanks to this Convention's action last year, Paul 
Kolish serves part-time in this work as well. 

Hand-in-hand with a strong commitment to social ministries must, I 
believe, go an equally strong commitment to spiritual renewal and nur- 
ture. I am delighted to have had The Society of St. John the Evangelist ac- 
cept our invitation to establish a House in our Diocese. St. John's House 
in Durham is fast becoming the spiritual center I hoped it would be, and 
we welcome the members of The Society to our family. So too, The 
Reverend William Coolidge and Cathy have developed at 
"Recompense," near Pittsboro, a center for prayer and reflection and 



84 Diocese of North Carolina 



spiritual direction. Both of these fine additions to our life together in this 
diocese are welcomed by me, and I hope by you as well. The clergy and I 
have held our second annual retreat together earlier this month and I 
look forward to leading the annual retreat for women later in the year. I 
have planned a similar retreat for the men of the diocese June 22nd-23rd 
of this year, and I hope it too will become an annual event. Our Con- 
ference Center continues to be a place for such retreats and for numerous 
conferences and meetings. Dick Hord, completing his first year as Direc- 
tor, and his fine and dedicated staff, have been seeing record crowds and 
intensified use of that wonderful facility. It is becoming, as we dreamed 
it would, a real center for our Diocese. Early in the year we retired the 
debt completely. Of course, the Diocese still supplements the budget as 
you will see when that report is made, but we hope the day is not too far 
away when it will be self-supporting. Our next and highest priority is for 
a Youth Facility there. The Reverend Robert McGee is our Youth Coor- 
dinator and has involved more clergy and young people than we have 
had in recent years. I am delighted to see the progress we are making in 
that area. We will soon have a second "Happening" for our young people 
and our regular Youth events are well attended. The emphasis is also on 
supporting and strengthening local youth groups, and the young people 
now organize and promote the very popular annual Acolyte Festival at 
Duke Chapel. On the college level, our work at St. Mary's College and St. 
Augustine's College continues under the able leadership of our two 
outstanding presidents, John Rice and Prezell Robinson. 

I am deeply indebted to The Reverend Dan Sapp, Chairman, and the 
members of our Commission on Ministry for their dedicated work. They 
have developed a system, in consultation with me, which includes a one- 
year Internship under close supervision and in a parish setting. Following 
ordination, we have set up a Residency Program. It provides a three-year 
"residency," again, under supervision and with an opportunity to learn 
"in the actual parish setting." A special Task Force, appointed by me and 
chaired by The Reverend Dan Riggall, has studied the Vocational 
Diaconate and has developed a position paper on the nature and function 
of that order as well as a guide for those who wish to become aspirants 
and study towards that end. I think it is one of the finest in the country 
and I have, with them, studied the work in other dioceses and met with 
the coordinator of the National Center for the Diaconate. 

I am proud of our diocese for voluntarily accepting the 1% standard of 
giving for theological education this past year. I hope that support will 
grow and I cannot emphasize too strongly the importance of that under- 
taking or of that monetary responsibility. 



Address of the Bishop 85 



Partly as a result of my challenge to the Diocese in 1982, four new con- 
gregations have started this past year. Two others have come into union 
with the Convention. They are St. Luke's, Yanceyville and Trinity, 
Fuquay-Varina. The Church of the Holy Spirit, Greensboro; St. 
Margaret's, Charlotte; St. Michael and All Angels, Charlotte; and The 
Chapel of Hope, Charlotte are the four new congregations. The latter two 
are the result of St. Michael's congregation moving into a new location in 
northwest Charlotte and The Chapel of Hope being reestablished on its 
original site. The Greater Episcopal Fellowship of Charlotte has assisted 
in the establishment of all three of its new churches. We plan for The 
Chapel of Hope to be closely related to the Christ the King Center and to 
the needs of the neighborhood. I welcome this new work, and especially 
The Reverend Edward King, the new Priest-in-Charge of St. Michael's, 
and the first black Priest in Charlotte for many years. The advent of The 
Reverend Cyril Burke as Chaplain at St. Augustine's College and The 
Reverend Emmanuel Collins at St. Stephen's, Winston-Salem, means that 
we are taking steps to increase and strengthen the work in our black con- 
gregations. That was a hope which I expressed in my last year's address. 

a 

I have asked a representative group of our congregations to bring ex- 
hibits of their particular projects and endeavors to this Convention. I 
hope you will take the time to go to the exhibits hall and see what they 
are doing. Galloway Memorial Chapel in Elkin, once almost closed, has a 
banner of the apostles made by their expanding Sunday School members. 
There is an exhibit of the Jubilee Center at St. Philip's, Durham, Colum- 
bariums at St. Michael's, Raleigh, St. Mark's, Roxboro, St. Thomas', 
Reidsville, and St. Paul's, Winston-Salem, the proposed building for St. 
Michael and All Angels, Charlotte, the refurbished building and Day 
Care Center at All Saints' , Warrenton, the new lot and start of the church 
building at St. John the Baptist, Wake Forest, where we broke ground 
two weeks ago, the new lot and building plans for St. Mary Magdalene, 
Troy, the newly refurbished parish hall at Trinity, Scotland Neck, the 
new church building of All Saints', Charlotte, the proposed new church 
building for Grace Church, Lexington, the new church building for St. 
Matthew's, Kernersville, pictures of the formation of the new congrega- 
tion at St. Margaret's, Charlotte, the new church building and Day Care 
Center at St. Elizabeth's, King, the Home for the Elderly project at All 
Saints', Concord, and pictures of the first services at The Church of the 
Holy Spirit in Greensboro. 

I still feel that my primary responsibility as a Bishop, despite all the 
other obvious duties that I am called upon to perform, is to be with you in 
the work and worship and life of our congregations. With the number of 



86 Diocese of North Carolina 



congregations growing, I am having to make more and more of my visita- 
tions on weeknights. I often make three visitations on Sundays and must 
move more quickly than I would like from one place to another. For the 
most part, all of you have been very understanding of my limited abilities 
and of the less-than-ideal situation we are in with one bishop in what is 
really a two-bishop diocese. I have been fortunate last year, and again 
this year, to obtain the services of outstanding Retired Bishops. Last year 
Bishop Putnam was here for four months, and I am delighted to have The 
Right Reverend John Burgess, Retired Bishop of Massachusetts, here for 
three and a half months this year. Nonetheless, we still need two full- 
time bishops. 

In consultation with, and with the consent of, the Standing Committee 
and the Diocesan Council, I now call on this Convention for the election 
of a Suffragan Bishop by reason of the extent of diocesan work. If you ac- 
cede to my wish, we must then write all of the Bishops and Standing 
Committees of the Church and receive a majority of their consents to 
elect such a person. That will take several months. I will, when that per- 
mission is obtained, ask the Standing Committee to form a Search Com- 
mittee for the purpose of drawing up a profile, and to nominate persons 
for that post. It is my hope that delegates to the 1985 Convention will be 
able to interview nominees well in advance, as you did when you elected 
me Bishop Coadjutor. We will then, if you adopt my plan, proceed to the 
election at our Annual Convention in January 1985. That will also pro- 
vide our Budget Department time to prepare an Assessment Budget with 
that item in it for 1985. 

Of course, that election will then be subject to the consents of the ma- 
jority of all the Bishops and Standing Committees and, when that is done, 
we should be able to ordain and consecrate that person as Suffragan 
Bishop in the Spring of 1985. 

I have given a great deal of thought to other possible alternatives but I 
believe that a Bishop Suffragan, elected by you to be one of your bishops, 
is the best decision for us to make. I hope you will agree. 

Returning briefly to the matter of visitations: I was surprised to find 
that in the past year I had made more visitations than Bishop Fraser and I 
combined had made in 1982! Still, the time spent— and hence, the quality 
of those visitations— simply cannot be as satisfactory as it would be with 
two bishops. If we elect a Suffragan, I wil give that person half of our con- 
gregations and I will take the other half. We will visit our respective 
halves each year and, when all have had visitations, we will switch. I will 



ft 



Address of the Bishop 87 



make certain that each assigned half contains congregations throughout 
the Diocese, since I think it unwise to divide the Diocese by size of con- 
gregation or geographical location. 

Finally, let me touch on two more important parts of our life together. 
The first is our proposed Companion Relationship with Belize. I cannot 
think of a finer diocese or country for us to be in a relationship with at 
this time. All of us who went there were deeply impressed with Bishop 
McMillan and with the work our Church is doing there with very limited 
resources and with only a few ordained persons. We have much to learn 
from them and much to receive from them. I believe we can do our part, 
too. Martha Alexander, of Christ Church, Charlotte, is the Head of our 
Companion Relationship Commission, and will report to this Conven- 
tion. I support that report heartily, and I look forward to our new rela- 
tionship. With you, I welcome Bishop McMillan to this Convention and 
look forward to his talk at our banquet tonight. This relationship comes at 
a time when Central America is very much in the news and on our hearts 
and minds. 

Last, but far from least, let me call you to renewed efforts in 
ecumenical things. I have been gratified by the large number of services 
which have been held with our Lutheran friends. I hope those services 
will not be all that we do. I hope that we will explore, with the Lutherans, 
ways we can work and worship and serve together, and I hope we will 
extend that to others as well. We simply must be about the business of 
recovering the visible unity of the Church in a world which desperately 
needs a united church and its message of salvation. 

So, we begin another year together. I do so with a heart full of gratitude 
to you for the privilege of being your Bishop, and with a heart full of the 
Holy Spirit Who calls us to sendee and Who gives our lives meaning and 
excitement and purpose.

Convention Reports 101 



Report of the Commission 
on Admission of Congregations 

The Commission on Admission of Congregations met several times this 
year to review applications from congregations seeking union with this 
convention. The Commission members have contacted each congrega- 
tion to review their application and acquaint them with the necessary re- 
quirements to maintain this status of being in union with convention. 

On three occasions congregations forming within boundaries of other 
parishes were required to obtain written permission of consent as re- 
quired by the Constitution and their Rectors were consulted with regard 
to the wisdom of the new congregation forming as required by Canon. 
These requirements were satisfied and are a part of their applications. 

The Commission is pleased to report that all Constitutional and 
Canonical requirements have been complied with and wishes at this time 
to introduce these congregations to this Convention for approval and 
their admission as Missions within the Diocese of North Carolina. We 
therefore move that the following congregations of the Episcopal Church 
in the Diocese of North Carolina be admitted into union with this Con- 
vention with all rights, privileges and responsibilities thereof: 

Trinity, Fuquay-Varina 

St. Elizabeth's, King 

St. Luke's, Yanceyville 

St. Margaret's, Charlotte 

Church of the Holy Spirit, Greensboro 

The Chapel of Hope, Charlotte 

The members of this Commission have worked meticulously in their 
efforts to underscore the importance of this action with all the congrega- 
tions that applied for admission. They have put in many hours on the 
road and in meetings with applicants and always did so joyfully and with 
a real sense of furthering the work of the Church. I wish to thank the 
members of the Commission: 



The Rev. Gary Gloster 
Mrs. John Shields 
Ms. Dot Leckie 
Mr. Carl Edge

Report of the Secretary 

The Secretary has attempted to perform the duties of the office as set 
forth in the Constitution, Canons and Rules of Order of the Convention. 
These have been more numerous during 1983 as a result of the adoption 
by the 167th Annual Convention of the report of the Committee on Struc- 
ture and Organization. 

In recent weeks, as a part of the preparation for this Annual Conven- 
tion, the Secretary has mailed copies of the annual reports of Boards, 
Commissions, Committees and Institutions of the Diocese received by 
him to the several Convention Committees, as follows:

Parochial Reports 

In this Diocese the Secretary of the Convention is designated as the 
Bishop's agent to receive and process the annual parochial reports of all 
churches, chapels and student centers. In recent years this task has 
become more difficult due to the increasing number of congregations that 
do not meet the canonical schedule for filing by February 1st of the year 
following that covered by the report. Thirty-six 1982 reports were re- 
ceived late, 23 of which arrived from six to eight weeks late. One was re- 



' 



104 Diocese of North Carolina 



ceived three months after the due date. The foregoing situation has 
prevailed despite appeals to late filers by the Bishop and the Secretary. 

The Secretary of the Convention, in addition to preparing the summary 
of parochial statistics for the annual Journal of the Diocese, is required to 
send to the National Church a compilation of all these reports (the total of 
every figure shown on each report, entered on a single form). This is due 
in New York, along with the yellow sheets of each report, on March 1st 
of the year following that which the reports cover. If these yellow sheets 
arrive in New York on time, the aforesaid compilation is done there at no 
cost to the Diocese. As is readily seen, late filings by our local congrega- 
tions prohibit our using this valuable service of the National Church. 

A Communication from the Secretary 
of the General Convention 

In compliance with the requirement of Article XII of the Constitution 
and Canon 1.1.1(e) of the General Convention, the Secretary of that body 
has given me official notice of the alterations of the Constitution, pro- 
posed at the General Convention of 1982 and to be finally acted upon at 
the General Convention of 1985. The Secretary of each Diocese is re- 
quired by General Convention Canon to make these proposals known to 
the Convention of his or her Diocese at the next meeting after receiving 
the same. Accordingly, copies of these alterations are attached to this 
report for the information of the delegates. They will be printed in the 
1984 Journal. Should there be objections to any proposed alteration, this 
should be made known to our Diocesan Commission on Constitution and 
Canons in plenty of time for this to be considered prior to our 1985 
Diocesan Convention. 

The Secretary hereby extends thanks and appreciation to all those who 
have so kindly assisted him with his duties during the 30 years he has 
been privileged to hold this office. Special thanks go to the Rev. Philip R. 
Byrum for his valuable assistance at Convention during many of those 
years.

Amendments to the Constitution proposed at the 

General Convention of 1982, and to be finally 

acted upon at the Convention of 1985 

That the first two paragraphs of Article I, Section 4, of the Constitu- 
tion shall be stricken and a new paragraph be substituted therefor, 
as follows: 

The Church in each Diocese which has been admitted to 
union with the General Convention, and the Convoca- 
tion of the American Churches in Europe, shall be enti- 
tled to representation in the House of Deputies by not 
more than four ordained persons, Presbyters or 
Deacons, canonically resident in the Diocese and not 
more than four Lay persons, communicants of this 
Church, in good standing, in the Diocese but not 
necessarily domiciled in the Diocese; but the General 
Convention by Canon may reduce the representation to 
not fewer than two Deputies in each order. Each 
Diocese, and the Convocation of the American 
Churches in Europe, shall prescribe the manner in 
which its Deputies shall be chosen. 



II. That Article VIII of the Constitution be amended by striking from 
said Article VIII the words "or Missionary Diocese," so that said 
Article VIII will read: 

No person shall be ordered Priest or Deacon to minister 
in this Church until he shall have been examined by the 
Bishop and two Priests and shall have exhibited such 
testimonials and other requisites as the Canons in that 
case provided may direct. No persons shall be ordained 
and consecrated Bishop, or ordered Priest or Deacon to 
minister in this Church, unless at the time, in the 
presence of the ordaining Bishop or Bishops, he shall 
subscribe and make the following declaration: 

"I do believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New 
Testaments to be the Word of God, and to contain all 
things necessary to salvation; and do solemnly engage to 
conform to the Doctrine, Discipline, and Worship of the 
Episcopal Church." 

Provided, however, that any person consecrated a 
Bishop to minister in any Diocese of an autonomous 



<? 

! 



106 Diocese of North Carolina 



Church or Province of a Church in communion with 
this Church may, instead of the foregoing declaration, 
make the promises of Conformity required by the 
Church in which he is to minister. 

If any Bishop ordains a Priest or Deacon to minister else- 
where than in this Church, or confers ordination as 
Priest or Deacon upon a Christian minister who has not 
received Episcopal ordination, he shall do so only in ac- 
cordance with such provisions as shall be set forth in the 
Canons of this Church. 

No person ordained by a foreign Bishop, or by a Bishop 
not in communion with this Church, shall be permitted 
to officiate as a Minister of this Church until he shall 
have complied with the Canon or Canons in that case 
provided and also shall have subscribed the aforesaid 
declaration. 

III. That Article X of the Constitution be amended by striking 
therefrom references to Missionary Dioceses and the Convocation 
of American Churches in Europe, and restating the provisions on 
voting, so that said Article X will read: 

The Book of Common Prayer and Administration of the 
Sacraments and other Rites and Ceremonies of the 
Church, together with the Psalter or Psalms of David, 
the Form and Manner of Making, Ordaining, and Con- 
secrating Bishops, Priests, and Deacons, the Form of 
Consecration of a Church or Chapel, the Office of In- 
stitution of Ministers, and Articles of Religion, as now 
established or hereafter amended by the authority of 
this Church, shall be in use in all the Dioceses of this 
Church. No alteration thereof or addition thereto shall 
be made unless the same shall be first proposed in one 
regular meeting of the General Convention and by a 
resolve thereof be sent within six months to the 
Secretary of the Convention of every Diocese, to be 
made known to the Diocesan Convention at its next 
meeting, and be adopted by the General Convention at 
its next succeeding regular meeting by a majority of all 
Bishops, excluding retired Bishops not present, of the 
whole number of Bishops entitled to vote in the House 
of Bishops, and by a vote by orders in the House of 



Convention Reports 107 



Deputies in accordance with Article I, Sec. 5, except that 
concurrence by the orders shall require the affirmative 
vote in each order by a majority of the Dioceses entitled 
to representation in the House of Deputies. 

But notwithstanding anything hereinabove contained, 
the General Convention may at any one meeting, by a 
majority of the whole number of the Bishops entitled to 
vote in the House of Bishops, and by a majority of the 
Clerical and Lay Deputies of all the Dioceses entitled to 
represntation in the House of Deputies voting by orders 
as previously set forth in this Article: 

(a). Amend the Table of Lessons and all Tables and 
Rubrics relating to the Psalms; 

(b). Authorize for trial use throughout this Church, as 
an alternative at any time or times to the established 
Book of Common Prayer or to any section or Office 
thereof, a proposed revision of the whole Book or any 
portion thereof, duly undertaken by the General Con- 
vention. 

And Provided, that nothing in this Article shall be con- 
strued as restricting the authority of the Bishops of this 
Church to take such order as may be permitted by the 
Rubrics of the Book of Common Prayer or by the 
Canons of the General Convention for the use of special 
forms of worship.

Coadjutor of a Diocese or as a Suffragan in another 
Diocese. 

That Article II, Section 7 of the Constitution be amended as follows: 

2. Add the words "for election" to the last sentence of 
Section 7 of Article II, so said sentence will read:

108 Diocese of North Carolina 



V. That Article II, Section 8 of the Constitution be amended to read as 
follows: 

Sec. 8. A Bishop exercising jurisdiction as the Ordinary, 
or as the Bishop Coadjutor, of a Diocese, may be elected 
as Bishop, Bishop Coadjutor, or Suffragan Bishop, of 
another Diocese; Provided, that he shall have served not 
less than five years in his present jurisdiction; and Pro- 
vided always, that before acceptance of such election he 
shall tender to the House of Bishops his resignation of 
his jurisdiction in the Diocese in which he is then serv- 
ing, conditioned on the required consents of the Bishops 
and Standing Committees of the Church to his election, 
and also, if he be a Bishop Coadjutor, his right of succes- 
sion therein, and such resignation, and renunciation of 
the right of succession in the case of a Bishop Coadjutor, 
shall be consented to by the House of Bishops. 

VI. That Article I of the Constitution be amended by deleting the fourth 
paragraph of Section 4, adding a new Section 5 reading as follows: 

Section 5. The vote on all questions which come before 
the House of Deputies shall be governed by the follow- 
ing provisions, supplemented by such procedural provi- 
sions as the House of Deputies may adopt in its Rules of 
Order: 

Unless a greater vote on any question is required by 
this Constitution or by the Canons in cases not specific- 
ally dealt with by this Constitution or unless a vote by 
orders on a question is required, the affirmative vote of 
a majority of all of the Deputies present and voting shall 
suffice to carry any question. 

A vote by orders on any question shall be taken if re- 
quired for that question by this Constitution or by the 
Canons or if the Clerical or Lay representation from 
three or more separate Dioceses shall so request at the 
time of the call for the vote on that question. In all cases 
of a vote by orders, the vote of each order, Clerical and 
Lay, shall be counted separately, each order in each 
diocese shall have one vote, and a vote in the affirmative 
by an order in a Diocese shall require the affirmative 
vote of a majority of the Deputies present in that order 
in that Diocese. 



Convention Reports 109 



To carry in the affirmative any question being voted 
on by orders requires concurrence in the affirmative by 
both orders and, unless a greater vote is required by this 
Constitution or by the Canons in cases not specifically 
dealt with by this Constitution, concurrence in the affir- 
mative by an order requires the affirmative vote in that 
order by a majority of the Diocese present in that order.

and the Convention of such Diocese, and consent there- 
to shall have been given by three-fourths of the Parishes 
in the ceded territory, and also by the same ratio of the 
Parishes within the remaining territory. 

Any territorial jurisdiction or any part of the same, 
which may have been ceded by a Diocese under the 
foregoing provision, may be retroceded to the said Dio- 
cese by such joint action of all the several parties as is 
herein required for its cession, save that in the case of 
retrocession of territory the consent of Parishes within 
the territory retroceded shall not be necessary; Provided, 
that such action of the General Convention, whether of 
cession or retrocession, shall be by a vote of two-thirds 
of all the Bishops present and voting and by a vote by 
orders in the House of Deputies in accordance with Arti- 
cle I, Section 5, except that concurrence in the affir- 
mative by an order requires the affirmative vote in that 
order by two-thirds of the Dioceses present in that 
order. 

VIII. That the first paragraph of Article XII of the Constitution be amend- 
ed to read as follows:

Report of the 
Stewardship Commission 

The Annual Diocesan Convention 1984 marks the second complete 
year for the Stewardship Commission, having been established by a 
resolution of Diocesan Convention 1982. While in its first year the com- 
mission devoted its time to organization, planning and study, the second 
year, 1983, has seen the fruition of previously established plans and pro- 
grams. 

The commission has completed the diocesan stewardship survey; held 
the first annual stewardship conference on April 21 and 22, 1983 with Dr. 
Thomas H. Carson, Jr., Executive for Stewardship for the Executive 
Council of the national church as keynoter; formed the Planned Giving 
Committee, which held its first planned giving conference on Septem- 
ber 24, 1983 with Mr. Richard M. Lamport, Jr., Capital Funding Officer 
for the Executive Council, as keynoter; served as a resource to congrega- 
tions—providing consultation, resources and personal visits for Sunday 
sermons and weekday stewardship addresses; and most significantly, 
saw The Venerable Neff Powell join the diocesan staff with stewardship 
being one of his staff assignments. 

It is a widely held conviction that volunteer organizations— of which 
the church is one— will need to provide effective planned giving pro- 
grams in order to face future financial obligations which will be impacted 
by economic trends already in evidence. The commission therefore sees 



1 12 Diocese of North Carolina 



one of its most significant developments during the past year being the 
formation and work of the Planned Giving Committee, a committee 
formed to deal with issues pertaining to the stewardship of accumulated 
wealth. Made up of persons with expertise in such fields as banking, law, 
insurance and development, this committee exists to assist individuals 
and congregations with the whole arena of planned or deferred giving. 

Our national Episcopal Church's new Pooled Income Fund is now a 
reality. This fund provides a way for church members to support the 
work of the church while increasing their financial security and pro- 
viding income for themselves and others. It is possible, for example, to 
contribute to the fund, receive an income for the rest of your life from the 
contribution, receive a charitable deduction from your taxable income, 
and at your death have the principal which will not be subject to estate 
taxes become part of the endowment of your local congregation. In this 
way your generosity, through planned giving, will benefit others and 
your church for generations to come. The Planned Giving Committee is 
prepared to talk about the Pooled Income Fund and to assist individuals 
and congregations in the establishment of planned giving programs. 

The Planned Giving Committee plans to hold an estate planning work- 
shop in 1984. It will have an information and resource room at Conven- 
tion which we hope delegates will visit and it will also sponsor a resolu- 
tion requesting diocesan support for planned giving activities. 

At this juncture in its work, the Stewardship Commission has reached 
its first plateau, i.e., the development of the commission itself and the 
carrying through of initial programs. It is the commission's intention to 
hold yearly diocesan stewardship conferences; the conference for the up- 
coming year is planned for June 15 and 16, 1984. Additional information 
on this conference will be forthcoming. It is also the commission's inten- 
tion to expand its offerings as a resource to congregations. Those con- 
gregations wishing consultation or speakers for the development of their 
stewardship programs should contact either the chairman of the commis- 
sion or Mr. Powell at the diocesan office. 

In the second phase of its work it will be incumbent upon the commis- 
sion to expand its educational scope as well as its programs and activities. 
If there is to be significant development of stewardship within the dio- 
cese, the commission must convey and establish within the diocese cer- 
tain precepts which guide the thinking of us all. Specifically, the commis- 
sion feels that the following are essential: 



Convention Reports 113 



• That stewardship is not synonymous with fund-raising but is essen- 
tially a matter of faith; 

• That stewardship is an attitude or perspective held by the faithful, an 
attitude which is equally pertinent to such matters as land use, health 
care, justice, peace and our response to the world's hungry; 

• That as Christians we must deal with the fact that our cultural values 
of acquisition and accumulation are often in conflict with Christian 
values as indicated in many of our Lord's parables and teachings which 
deal pointedly with the use and misuse of material possessions; 

• That stewardship really begins with our baptismal commitment and 
is as clear an indicator as any of our commitment to Christ and the work 
of the church. 

The commission feels that it has made credible progress over the past 
two years and believes that it is on schedule with its assigned task. While 
planning to continue programs already in place, the commission looks 
forward to addressing additional areas of interest and expanding its work 
with the congregations of the diocese in 1984.

Report of the Communications Commission 

The members of this commission, newly formed by the last Diocesan 
Convention, have spent time in establishing the purpose and develop- 
ment of the commission over the past year. We are excited by the poten- 
tial which lies ahead for us and the Diocese of North Carolina through 
the formation of the Communications Commission. We have adopted the 
following statement of purpose: "The Communications Commission is to 
provide direction to communications efforts in the diocese (church adver- 
tising, etc.) which will enhance and spread the work of the ministry of 
the church and the diocese in Jesus Christ, and to support the Communi- 
cations Officer of the diocese via advice, counsel, and encouragement." 

We spent the first half of the year evaluating the purpose for the ex- 
istence of The Communicant, how well it accomplishes its purpose, and 
the need for exploration and definition of purpose and philosophy. Out of 
these concerns, we addressed the problems of publication in general, and 
publishing a church publication in particular. We noted that ideally, such 



1 14 Diocese of North Carolina 



a publication should inform, provoke, entertain, and persuade, but that 
the limitations on all publications of this nature are money, time, and 
space. The problem we found was this— how can we communicate what 
people want and still maintain a standard? 

The Commission is still working on these issues in order to get a clearer 
focus on what the mission of The Communicant should be; however, at 
mid-year we received the resignation of the Editor of The Communicant 
and all of our attention has been channeled in that direction. We have 
been working very closely with Bishop Estill in advising and evaluating 
what would be to the best interest of our diocese in filling the position of 
the Communications Officer. Along those same lines, we assisted Bishop 
Estill in interviewing the candidates for this position. 

In addition to evaluating The Communicant and assisting with the inter- 
viewing process of a new Communications Officer, we are attempting to 
be creative and go beyond any previous bodies to present new thoughts 
and ideas in communications and to address new means of communica- 
tions within the diocese. We are now investigating using printed news- 
paper ads promoting the Episcopal Church in various "pilot projects" 
throughout the diocese. Our aim is also to look at closed-circuit television 
coverage or cassette recordings of functions being held within the diocese 
which will be shown later at convocation meetings; we are researching 
the possibilities of television spot coverage and ads on a "pilot project" 
basis as an experimentation. 

We would like to meet the needs for helping those who will be work- 
ing and are working with various areas of communications. Using our 
Conference Center, we would like to offer a conference or workshop for 
church secretaries on putting together the parish bulletin and/or church 
newsletters. 

We on the Commission have worked hard and have struggled seriously 
with the issues and concerns surrounding our diocesan newspaper, The 
Communicant. The cooperation and support of each other by the mem- 
bers through our long meetings has done much to allow us to make our 
final decisions prayerfully and harmoniously.

Report of the 
Companion Diocese Commission 

In the Spring of 1983 the Overseas Mission Committee became the 
Companion Diocese Commission. The companion diocese relationship 
engages participants in a partnership of mission. Usually one diocese 
from the USA is involved with one or more dioceses beyond its continen- 
tal borders. The dioceses are part of the Episcopal Church or Anglican 
Communion. The relationship is a formal three-year commitment once 
ratified by each diocese. It may be renewed for another three-year 
period. 

A companion diocese is clearly a mutual relationship and one in which 
there is shared concern and prayer for one another. It is an opportunity to 
deepen the awareness of what it means to be the Body of Christ. 

What does a relationship involve? First and foremost a mutual agree- 
ment must be established. Communication is to be a key factor as in any 
relationship. Preliminary visits should take place and goals need to be 
established by both parties. ** ,,, *» 

S 

After the relationship has begun there are many ways in which there is 
participation by both dioceses such as: letter exchanges, prayer, exchange 
visits and exchange of Christian education material, music, art and 
speakers. The list is endless and belongs to each of us as the commission's 



j^/^aiv^io. HIV- UOl lO V-iA\aiV^OO ClllW L^H-HAgO i.\J \_C*\^11 KJL wo «o Llll^ V^UlllllllOOlUIl o 

wish is to have 100% participation by each parish and mission. 

The main objective of this commission is to seek out and enter into a 
relationship with a companion diocese. This includes beginning the 
dialogue and onsite visits to the potential companion diocese. Besides this 
objective we are continuing outreach to Haiti and monitoring the mission 
work from the diocese in other places. 

The commission set the following parameters for our companion 
diocese relationship. To us it seemed practical that the companion 
diocese be within a day's travel distance of North Carolina so that this 
relationship could be based on "people to people" by exchange visits; 
that there be clear contrasts in terms of style and way of living with this 
diocese; that language not be an issue; and, that we not choose an area 
primarily noted as a resort. 

As we looked at several places, it became apparent to us that the coun- 
try of Belize had much to offer us. It met our criteria and we began to ex- 



116 Diocese of North Carolina 



plore further their interest. In September the Rt. Rev. Keith A. McMillan, 
Bishop of Belize, came to the Diocese of North Carolina for five days at 
the invitation of Bishop Estill. Thus began the dialogue. One of the im- 
portant questions Bishop McMillan raised is the crux of a companion 
diocese relationship— "What can my people offer you?" Indeed it is ex- 
tremely important as we begin this journey of a relationship with another 
diocese that we remember what Bishop Stephen F. Bayne, Jr. wrote in 
his book Mission is Response: 

The problem is that we "spiritualize" the giving and receiving 
so that we end up by separating the two transactions alto- 
gether. We will give what we think we want to give, and we 
will receive what we think we want to receive. And suddenly 
there isn't any giving or receiving in this at all. This is a 
managed transaction from the start, because we have mushed 
it up and dulled the point of it altogether. The essence of 
receiving is that you do not dictate what it is you are going to 
receive, you are willing to receive what you give. . . . The 
hardest thing— the hardest lesson for our church to learn— is 
to learn how to receive, and to learn how to receive from God. 

A relationship such as the one we are seeking is one in which we must 
find a way to share intimately and honestly with one another about 
ourselves and the Gospel. 

In January 1984 Bishop Estill and several people from this diocese will 
make a visit to Belize. Hopefully at our 168th convention, at the end of 
January, we will be able to affirm this relationship. 

"Let us go forth into the world, rejoicing in the power of the Spirit." 

"Thanks be to God."

Report of the Commission 
on Ecumenical Relations 

The Commission on Ecumenical Relations is made up of the Ecumeni- 
cal Officer and five representatives to the North Carolina Council of 



Convention Reports 117 



Churches. The purposes of the Commission include encouraging 
cooperation and understanding among all Christian Churches especially 
as regards the possibility of increasing unity through the reunion of the 
various denominations and communions now existing. Also, through the 
Ecumenical Officer, to act as liaison between the Diocesan Bishop and 
such larger and national ecumenical bodies as the National Workshop on 
Christian Unity, the Episcopal Diocesan Ecumenical Officers Association 
and the Standing Committee on Ecumenical Relations of the Episcopal 
Church. 

During the past year, much attention has been given to the new 
Lutheran-Episcopal Agreement which provides for a close working rela- 
tionship and Interim Eucharistic Sharing. This agreement includes three 
Lutheran Churches soon to merge into one— the Lutheran Church of 
America, the American Lutheran Church and the American Evangelical 
Lutheran Church— and could lead to full communion between the 
Episcopal Church and these Lutheran Churches.

The Commission will also study the Final Report, a document in- 
cluding the agreed statements of the Anglican-Roman Catholic Interna- 
tional Commission which deliberated at various times over a period of 
ten years ending September 1981, and, along with other Diocesan 
Ecumenical Commissions, will report to the National Church its degree 
of acceptance on the findings. 

On March 3, 1983, Bishop Estill invited the Methodist clergy and lay 
persons of the Diocesan area to a celebration of the Holy Eucharist in 
honor of the ministry of John and Charles Wesley. This event occurred at 
St. Michael's Church, Raleigh, and was attended by several hundred 
Methodists and Episcopalians. 

After decades of work, the Faith and Order Commission of the World 
Council of Churches has produced a document, "Baptism, Eucharist and 
Ministry," commonly called the Lima Report. It is a joint statement of 
faith created by 100 Roman Catholic, Anglican, Orthodox and Protestant 
theologians meeting in Lima, Peru. This document is ecumenically un- 
precedented and theologically unites churches from every area of the 
Christian spectrum. It contains a new Eucharistic Liturgy of universal 
character that could be used by the most varied traditions. The Diocesan 
Ecumenical Commission will begin a study of this report late in 1984. 

The Commission invites your reports of any local ecumenical activities 
or questions about ecumenical affairs within our area, or the wider range 



118 Diocese of North Carolina 



of national or worldwide activities in Christian Unity. We also recom- 
mend a subscription to the Ecumenical Bulletin, published bi-monthly by 
the Ecumenical Office, Episcopal Church. Subscriptions are $6.00 an- 
nually and may be ordered from the Seabury Service Center, Somers, CT 
06071.

Report of the Episcopal Churchwomen 

The Episcopal Churchwomen's theme for 1982-1983 was "Go Forth In- 
to The World." The thrust was to challenge, inspire, nurture and enable 
each other to spread the light of Christ's Gospel both here and through- 
out the world. 

The Episcopal Churchwomen have been faithful to their stewardship. 
$138,300 was given to the mission of the church, of which $50,000 was 
their gift to the United Thank Offering. Two national UTO grants were 
made to our Diocese in August: $24,000 for a bus for the migrant ministry 
and a matching grant of $25,000 was given St. Philip's, Durham for the 
Urban Ministries Center Building. 

The ECW gave a grant to the building of an agricultural and trade 
school in Merger, Haiti. This is on a large farm owned by the Diocese of 
Haiti. We also gave a grant for the work of the Anglican Church in 
Jerusalem which feeds as many as 3,000 refugees a day. At St. Mary's 
School for Indian Girls in South Dakota we assisted one of the students 
with her education. 

The ECW responded with $4,000 toward the needs of the migrant 
workers who we feel are still locked into a complex and vicious system. 

This year we affirmed our continuing support of the Episcopal institu- 
tions by giving scholarships to St. Augustine's College and St. Mary's Col- 
lege. We contributed to the Episcopal Child Care Services, to Penick 
Home and its library, the Church Periodical Club, the Presiding Bishop's 
Fund for World Relief, plus sending gifts to our missionaries. 

We are able to add to the worship and study life of the Churchwomen 
through our programs. The annual worship retreat at the Conference 
Center, led by Bishop Estill, was filled to capacity. An outstanding event 



Convention Reports 119 



was our seminar led by the Reverend Sara Chandler of St. Paul's Church, 
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. This was a study of The Gospel of John. 

The Diocese of North Carolina held its first Altar Guild Festival in May 
at the Conference Center. The primary purpose was to have a showing of 
the liturgical arts of the diocese. Exhibits were brought in by altar guild 
members from parishes all over the diocese. There were over 100 ex- 
hibits of vestments, banners, kneelers, linens, Christmons, paintings, 
crosses, vessels, etc. 160 attended. Sandra Hynson, Altar Guild President 
of the National Cathedral, conducted a workshop on church flower ar- 
ranging. Betty Sturges, immediate past President of the National Associa- 
tion of Altar Guilds, was the keynote speaker for the day. 

In order to provide better communication and to disseminate informa- 
tion pertaining to our organization we publish a bi-monthly newsletter, 
"Patchwork." This is sent to ECW officers in each church. We mail over 
1,000 copies. 

O 
At the Annual Meeting a resolution was passed to establish a fund for 

the erection of a building at the Conference Center for the youth. We have 

urged all persons, groups, and congregations to join the ECW in this next 

important phase toward the completion of the Diocesan Conference 

Center. This is not only a precious gift to ourselves and to our children, 

but to countless generations to come. 



ECW is still facing the challenge of how best to minister to the needs of 
working women. Of all workers in North Carolina, more than half are 
women. The U.S. Department of Labor projects that by 1990, 19 out of 20 
women will be a part of the work force. 

r- 

We have a Working Women's Committee that organized a weekend 
retreat, a workshop and a seminar. We had Saturday and evening 
meetings to accommodate the many in the work force. The working 
women want to participate in the ECW's organization and the ECW cer- 
tainly wants them in the mainstream of its activity. 

There are exciting things going on in our diocese, and women are a part 
of all of this. The role of women in society and in the church has changed 
so much in recent years. We are serving on vestries and boards and chair- 
ing important committees. 

The Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Carolina have 
carried on effective programs of education and service and are giving 



120 Diocese of North Carolina 



liberally, joyfully and lovingly of their time, talent, money and energy as 
they "Go Forth Into The World."

Report of the "N.C. 2000' ' 

I am very happy to make the report for N.C. 2000, which is the long- 
range planning committee established by Bishop Estill at the convention 
last year. The members of this committee have gained much from the 
sharing of our ideas and information gained from others in the Diocese 
and state. As Chairman of this committee, I have been enriched personal- 
ly by the challenge from our Bishop. We will offer two resolutions which 
are in our packets. One, that this committee become a permanent com- 
mission and the second, a resolution asking each congregation to par- 
ticipate in long-range planning for itself and for the Diocese. 

In order that you may have a sense of what the committee has done 
this year, I will summarize our activities. Members of this group have in- 
terviewed more than 40 persons throughout this Diocese who are in- 
volved in business, teaching, industry, education, banking, legal practice 
and the church. From these interviews have evolved five areas of em- 
phasis—world issues, education, high technology, demographics and 
spiritual life. I will speak briefly about each of these five areas. 

1. World Issues raises the critical concerns of war and peace— the basic 
question being how to bring the message of God's love to a world divided 
by religions, social differences, economic disparities, ideologies, etc. 

2. Education— Sixty percent of the United States, by the year 2033, will 
have had college exposure. Today about 30% of our population have at- 
tended college. Questions of continuing education and models for educa- 
tion will occupy much thought and study during the next 16 years. 

3. High Technology— and the relating issue of the new poor, expansion 
of small businesses, the paradox of the computer age and personal 
growth all fall under this heading of High Technology. What is the best 
process for North Carolina and our parishes to cope with some of the 
changing trends, one of which is moving from an industrial to a com- 
munication society? We, the citizens of North Carolina and members of 



Convention Reports 121 



the Episcopal Church, have choices about the path of North Carolina's 
economic development in the years ahead. 

4. Demographics— There are many resources. One is the Governor's 
Council on N.C. 2000. The N.C. 2000 Committee will have available for 
each congregation demographic material concerning its county, which 
should be of great help to the churches of this Diocese in their planning 
for the future. The Department of Commerce was quoted in the July 1983 
Economic Development Report as saying that manufacturing, employment 
and income in North Carolina are projected to grow faster than that of 
the United States during the next 15 years. Employment and primary 
metals, fabrics and motor vehicles are predicted to grow significantly 
faster in North Carolina that in both the U.S. and the Southeast in 
general. Employment in textiles will be reduced from 31% to 24%. 
Despite this relative shift, however, textile employment will still repre- 
sent the largest manufacturing sector in North Carolina by the year 2000. 
Tomorrow's elderly will be a dominant force in the United States. In 
1980, 11.3% of our population were 65 years of age or older; by 2033, 
21.5% will be 65 or older. 

5. Spiritual life— As technology grows more complex, Americans will 
become more intense in their search for religious meaning and spiritual 
wellbeing. Churches, synagogues and philosophical institutions will play 
a larger part in the community life. Greater importance will be placed on 
traditional values of the family, friendship and patriotism. Church affilia- 
tion will grow beyond the 60% of Americans who are now counted as 
members. The computer and personal growth, though paradoxical, will 



i 



go hand— in— hand, for the more we learn about technology, the more 
we want to learn about ourselves, our neighbors and our environment. A 
"successful parish' ' will be seen not in terms of institutional tasks but as a 
nurturing and caring community. Part of the phenomena of spiritual 
growth will take place within the Episcopal Church. This growth will be 
manifested in many forms. The rise of Faith Alive, Cursillo, Marriage En- 
counter, Healing, Prayer and Praise Groups are associated with renewal 
that people want and need desperately. These movements have caused 
others who are not even members of these groups to ask themselves, 
"What is my spirituality?" and the results have been an increasing in- 
terest in personal growth. 

The first step your N.C. 2000 committee recommends for this Diocese 
in planning for the future is the S.W.E.E.P. (Service, Worship, 
Evangelism, Education, Pastoral care) process to be done in each local 
church or mission. We plan to make available for each congregation a 



122 Diocese of North Carolina 



S.W.E.E.P. packet with a page of instructions to aid each church in long- 
range planning. (I have a sample of a packet— information for 'St. 
Swillins'— the county demographics and the simple "do-it-yourself in- 
structions.) Each congregation will be asked to choose a lay person to be 
the contact with our committee and we will offer a convoca- 
tional/regional meeting so that the congregational representative can 
learn how to use this process. Some churches have already done or are in 
the process of using S.W.E.E.P. as a tool for long-range planning. We see 
that the information gathered in this manner, plus the process itself, will 
be of value to the local congregation and to other congregations of com- 
parable size and composition. We can learn from one another. 

Your N.C. 2000 committee is very excited about the opportunity we all 
have in planning together for the future of our church's life in the 
Diocese of North Carolina. Please pass on your thoughts and ideas to 
members of our committee. You will hear more from us. Thank you.

Report of the Commission on Aging 

The first year of the Commission has placed emphasis on identifying 
resources for parishes and highlighting issues of aging which both com- 
plement and challenge the local parish ministry with aging. As a means 



124 Diocese of North Carolina 



of accomplishing this twofold approach, the Commission sponsored a 
fact-finding trip to Washington, D.C. February 6-8, 1983 in cooperation 
with the Western Diocese's Task Force on Aging. 

Over 30 persons spent two days at the National Council on the Aging, 
studying the issues of aging being considered by the Federal government. 
Discussions were held with the Episcopal Church Liaison office in 
Washington concerning the role of the church in such issues as Social 
Security, Housing Allotments, Supplemental Income, Health Insurance, 
and Advocacy. Participants also visited their congresspersons and at- 
tended hearings on Social Security at the Capitol Building. As a result, the 
attendees were able to return to their local parishes equipped with a net- 
work of information which enabled them to minister more effectively in 
the local community with older adults. 

The second thrust was realized in the three Dioceses of North Carolina 
co-sponsoring the First Nationwide Conference on Ministry with the 
Elderly through a closed-circuit television broadcast held at the Four 
Seasons Holiday Inn, Greensboro, on October 18, 1983. Over 100 clergy 
and laity, representing a broad age spectrum from rural and urban areas, 
were challenged by national church leaders and geriatric professionals to 
deal with a positive understanding of the aging process; spiritual growth 
in later years; the impact of aging on the Church; and the role for the 
community in this ministry. The group discussed the presentations, 
groped with the major problems and formulated plans for refining their 
ministry with the aging in local parishes. 

The members of the Commission have met quarterly to continue to 
prepare themselves for the task of planning, development and im- 
plementation of network of information, issues, models, and resources 
which will be used to bring recommendations to future Diocesan Con- 
ventions on ministry to and with the aging in the Diocese. 

The Commission Members serving during 1983 are: Mrs. Alan Cone, 
Ms. Martha W. Ensign, Mr. Thomas J. Garrett, Jr., Mrs. Randall Jarrell, 
The Rev. Arthur Kortheuer, Mrs. Richard Ling, The Rev. Jacob Viverette, 
Jr., Mrs. Virginia Mortimer, The Rev. Nancy Pagano, Mrs. Ruth Prongay,

Convention Reports 125 



Report of the Commission 
on Evangelism and Renewal 

At the 167th Diocesan Convention, the Task Force on Evangelism and 
Renewal recalled the 1981 report of the Committee on the State of the 
Church. That report gave warning that "... statistics reveal a diocese 
that has been stagnant for the last eight years . . . [having] grown a total 
of 3% while the population of North Carolina has grown 12%." Based on 
the reality of this warning and further consultations, the Task Force 
moved for the establishment of this Commission on Evangelism and 
Renewal. The Commission now reports statistics of the last 10 years with 
a 9.4% growth in Baptized Members, but a 0.9% decrease in Communi- 
cant strength as of January, 1983, against an approximate 10% state popu- 
lation increase. These figures are given as some measurement of activity 
in the diocese, knowing that the goal of our continual action of evangeli- 
zation is not merely to increase statistical figures, but is a faithful re- 
sponse to our Lord's call. Evangelization is the predominate function of 
the Church, and all that the Church says and does must proclaim God's 
love through Jesus Christ if it is to remain true to that call: its social ac- 
tion, education, stewardship, worship, pastoral care, and evangelism. 
This must be understood in proper perspective before we shall see any 
meaningful increase in these statistics. \* 

r 

To this end this Commission puts forth the definition of evangelism as 
"a desired and intentional action of conveyance of the Good News of 
Jesus Christ to that part of the world which we can reach." The question 

now raised is, "Who makes up the 'we'?" 

::; 

P 
St. Andrew's first response to John the Baptist's proclamation, "Behold 

the Lamb of God!" was to join himself to Jesus. His second response was 
to go and tell his brother, Simon Peter, of Jesus. This Gospel story sets the 
pattern. A love relationship with Jesus Christ is a personal experience 
which leads one to a personal commitment. The "we" is each and every 
member of the Body of Christ (the Church). It is this one-to-one, mustard- 
seed approach of Jesus that builds the Church. Thus, a true evaluation of 
evangelization lies in the commitment of individuals to share God's love 
through the one-to-one exemplification of God in each of their lives. Let 
us also remember that the power of God's Word shared is sufficient to 
draw others into the Body of Christ. 

Evangelization begins on the individual level and broadens to the in- 
stitutional level. And being an instrument of God's redemptive activity, 



§; 



126 Diocese of North Carolina 



the institutional church is a channel of that nurturing force, by the Holy 
Spirit, to individual people. It is here that the ministry of renewal is ac- 
tualized. 

With this two-way model, the Commission has set for itself a threefold 
job description: 

1. to serve the Convention and Diocese through a definition and 
description of evangelism and renewal; 

2. to serve congregations and convocations providing resources and 
consultation, workshops and seminars, written materials and commen- 
taries; 






Hi 



3. to serve renewal groups of the Diocese providing a bridge for com- 
munication between these groups and the diocese and conversely. 



In line with this job description, the Commission is setting itself to a 
program of individual renewal within the diocese, which is already 
witnessing to the love of Jesus through educational and social ministry. 
The Commission sees the most efficient way to reach individuals to be 
through the clergy of the diocese in the local churches and diocesan 
gatherings. Thus, the Commission shall endeavor to recommend to the 
diocese programs to strengthen clergy in their understanding of evangeli- 
zation within the context of their present ministries, that they may in 
turn renew their parishioners' commitment through the sharing of God's 
love. And, it is the Commission's hope to sponsor a diocesan renewal 
event in 1984. 

II 

The Commission feels that churches need to evaluate themselves to see 

how and where they now stand in the total call to evangelization before 
they can efficiently renew their people to the call of effective evangeliza- 
tion. This evaluation begins with an understanding of the structure, func- 
tions, and style of relationships in its group life. To aid this understanding 
among clergy and leaders of the churches, 500 copies of Dr. Arlin J. 
Rothauge's booklet, "Sizing Up A Congregation For New Member 
Ministry," were distributed throughout the diocese. Many churches took 
advantage of the learning opportunity through this booklet, and it is 
hoped that others will recognize the importance of Dr. Rothauge's work. 
We also continue to recommend the "Guide for Congregational Self- 
Evaluation," which has been distributed to all churches. This program 
aids in the evaluation of the ministries of service (to others), worship, 
evangelism, education, and pastoral care (S.W.E.E.P.). In 1984 evaluation 
consultation based on the "Guide For Congregational Self-Evaluation" 



Convention Reports 127 



will be available through the office of the Archdeacon and the Diocesan 
Network of Consultants. In early 1984, Dr. Rothauge's new booklet "A 
Church Is Born" (basis for starting and developing a mission congrega- 
tion) will be mailed to the clergy. 

The Commission looks forward to the encouragement, promotion, and 
spiritual support of the work of renewal programs through Cursillo, Mar- 
riage Encounter, Engagement Encounter, The Anglican Fellowship of 
Prayer, Happening, the Brotherhood of St. Andrew, and Faith Alive. 
These renewal groups presently make available a wealth of renewal pro- 
grams in our diocese. We recommend their offerings to the churches, 
clergy and laity. We look forward to continued dialogue between these 
groups and the Commission. The Commission is also very grateful to the 
individual churches of the diocese that have locally sponsored noted 
evangelists. 

!$" 

As we individuals pray, work, and fellowship together, we build up the 
Church which lives on Jesus' body and blood that it, the Church, may 
teach and preach the Gospel and serve God's people. 

The Rev. William S. Mclnnis 

Report of Cursillo 

il 

The Cursillo Movement continued strong and exciting during 1983. 
Participation remained active with 125 new candidates, composed of 
both laity and clergy, added over the four three-day weekends. The 
strength and excitement comes from the personal witness of most of the 
participants that their spiritual journey has been enhanced and made 
clearer as a result of their Cursillo activity. 

We have recognized that as participation grows, it is imperative that 
the quality of our leadership and follow-up also grow. Our sensitivity to 
this need prevents the Cursillo weekend from becoming another moun- 
taintop experience with little future impact. Thus we began active leader- 
ship training during the year and began organizational development to 
continue and improve this process. 

We are cognizant of a growing need for this style of Christian renewal 
movement and have scheduled five three-day weekends for each of the 
years 1984 and 1985. 



128 Diocese of North Carolina 



We are most appreciative of the active support throughout the year and 
at each weekend of Bishop Robert W. Estill. 



Henry S. Craumer 



Report of the Missioner to the Deaf 

The Convention held in Durham in January, 1983 , was an exciting 
event for our Deaf Congregations. For the first time in our history, 
delegates from Ephphatha and St. Athanasius Churches for the Deaf 
were seated with full vote and voice (hands?). However, the convention 
raised a rather "hot" issue for our deaf members. The ratification of a 
General Convention resolution on abortion was difficult to understand. 
The deaf feel that it "implies" permission to abort for reasons such as 
physical deformation (such as deafness). Equally difficult was the inabili- 
ty of the deaf delegates to "keep pace" with the discussion, due to normal 
delays in translation through interpreters. This "awareness" will likely 

!! be felt again at this convention in Raleigh. 

II i 

1983 has otherwise been a transition year for our deaf ministries. The 
structural changes within the Diocese affect us as well as other special- 
ities. We have also discovered that many goals set five years ago have 
been accomplished. Therefore in 1984, we will once again be involved in 
long-range planning under the guidance of the Mission and Outreach 
Committee. New work at St. John's in Charlotte, and the continued ef- 
forts of Mr. Paul Kolisch give us hope for an exciting new year. Thanks to 
all who have supported us.

Report of the Commission on Youth 

The purposes of the proposed Department of Youth are as follows: to 
support youth by showing them that the Church and the Lord love them 
and care for them, to support youth ministries on the local level by pro- 
viding ideas and assistance that enhance existing relationships, by pro- 
viding consultants to work with local groups, and to provide a clear- 
inghouse of information and opportunities for activities, events, con- 
ferences, and ideas. 



Convention Reports 129 



As Youth Coordinator it has been my job to chair the Youth Council, 
coordinate diocesan-wide activities, represent youth to the Diocesan 
Council Committee on Mission and Outreach, and represent the Diocese 
at National and Provincial meetings. 

The Department of Youth is operating under a proposed structure at 
the present time. Under this structure the Department is made up of the 
following committees: the Acolyte Festival Committee, the Scouting 
Committee, the Youth Camping Committee, the Youth Conference Com- 
mittee, the Convocation and Youth Group Support Committee, the 
Education and Training Committee, the Youth Services Committee, as 
well as a Conference Center Board Representative. 

f\ 
The Youth Council will meet three to four times a year to coordinate 

committee-planned activities. The membership will include a chairper- 
son from each of the preceding committees, the Director of Program, the 
Conference Center Board representative and various other young people 
from the Diocese. Membership will be divided among youth, adult, 
clergy and laity. 

The Council will approve budget requests to the Diocese. 



At the present time, representatives are being selected for the various 
committees comprising the Department of Youth.

Report of the Director of Program 

"Just as a human body, though it is made up of many parts, is a single unit 
because all these parts, though many, make one body, so it is with Christ. " 
I Corinthians 12:12. 

The Diocese of North Carolina is a body made up of many parts and is 
itself part of a larger body, the body of Christ. I am pleased and proud to 
be a part of this part of that larger body. 

Many thanks to Bishop Estill for calling me to the Diocese from the 
Diocese of Oregon to be Archdeacon and Director of Program. And thank 
you, too, to many of you for welcoming me and my family. I am still in 
the start-up phase of this ministry and I beg your patience as we sort this 
out and work together for the building up and strengthening of Christ's 
body in this place. 



130 Diocese of North Carolina 



I see my work in the Diocese as being to support, encourage, enhance, 
and enable existing programs and to generate new programs, with a 
special emphasis on Christian Education, Stewardship, Small Churches, 
Youth, and to promote the use of the Conference Center. I would like to 
thank several people with whom I have been working closely in the 
above areas for the past several months. First, I need to thank Harrison 
Simons for his work both with the Small Church Committee and the 
Education and Training Committee. Both the issue of small church and of 
Christian education are of enormous importance to the life and health of 
the church. As a Diocese, we can be proud that these active committees 
are so well led. 

ill I 

Secondly, thanks to Glenn Busch, who has worked singlehandedly for 

three years to launch a Stewardship Commission. A new offshoot of that 

Commission is the Planned Giving Committee which will be focusing on 

the area of estate planning. Through our giving to God through church 

we return to God a portion of the great bounty with which he has blessed 

us. 

II I 

I 

A special thanks, too, to Robert McGee for his work as the volunteer 
Youth Coordinator. Diocesan Youth Work has gone through a great 
change in the past two years. Bob is to be thanked for his role in helping 
the youthworkers in the Diocese work through these changes. 

The Resource Center for the Diocese has now been moved from Ox- 
ford to the Diocesan House. With this Resource Center, we hope to 
develop a library of books, tapes, and videotapes. These will focus 
primarily on Christian education, stewardship, small churches, and con- 
gregational life. 

I am committed to being in congregations to preach, celebrate, and 
speak to adult forums one Sunday a month. In the canvassing season, late 
October-early November, this is every Sunday. I have enjoyed the time 
that I have had on Sundays to preach, celebrate and share with you all. 

I would also like to thank my secretary, Brooke Viverette, for her 
always cheerful help. Having served eight years in a mission church 
without a secretary, I can attest to how important good secretarial help is 
in carrying out the ministry of the church. 

Please feel free to call on Brooke and upon my office for assistance. 

Again, I am pleased to be a part of the Diocese of North Carolina 
family.

Report of the Commission on Small Churches 

This has been an exciting year for the Committee with much ac- 
complished in the midst of serious illness experienced by three of our 
members. The rest of the Committee took on added duties at different 
times of need to fulfill our responsibilities. 

Such led to the excitement of endorsing building plans for St. 
Matthew's, Kernersville, and St. John the Baptist, Wake Forest. We have 
worked with a new congregation of St. Elizabeth's, King, which has the 
possibility of buying a church from another denomination. We are also in 
conversation with interested communicants who have a similar oppor- 
tunity in northwest Charlotte to move St. Michael's and All Angels, and 
at the same time reestablish The Chapel of Hope at Christ the King 
Center. We have been helped in this by the Greater Episcopal Fellowship 
of Charlotte, which has also supported the development of the new con- 
gregation of St. Margaret's in north Charlotte. 






Other exciting developments have been the gift of land to the mission 
congregation of St. Mary Magdalene in Troy, and the initiation of the 
Church of the Holy Spirit in northeast Greensboro. im H 

P 

We have watched with interest the election of Convocation Wardens to 
assist the Deans, and are studying further the present geographical ar- 
rangements of our Convocations. This has also led us to consider survey- 
ing possible regional and demographic changes in the future, of which 
we initiated some informal data-gathering this past year. 

Ill 

Finally, we have approved for mission assistance a number of con- 
gregations through the program budget. We co-sponsored a Small Church 
Conference with the Dioceses of the Carolinas, plus a workshop for 
treasurers and finance officers. We met with the National Small Church 
Network, and the Leadership Academy for New Directions, and have 
been in conversations with a regional diocesan plan for Continuing 
Education for Clergy in Small Churches. We are thankful that more 
recognition and awareness are given to small churches by both Province 
IV and the Episcopal Church Center in New York. 

All our work has been done with the support, guidance and presence of 
the Bishop and the new Archdeacon. We are grateful for their guidance 
and help. The Chairman is deeply grateful for the extra work done by all 
the other Committee members.

Report of the Education 
and Training Commission 

One of the most enriching ministries to the Diocese is the work of this 
Committee by 20 clergy and laypersons from our several convocations. 
These volunteers meet every six to eight weeks, provide consultation, 
and design diocesan and regional workshops, programs and resources in 
Christian Education. 
■ 

We sponsor two specific long-range programs: The Sewanee Education 
for Ministry Program, under the direction of Mary Kay Hildebrandt; and 
the Mid-Atlantic Association of Training and Consulting, supervised by 
The Rev. Roderick Reinecke. 

II ! 
Ill 

The Sewanee Program is a guided four-year education process for laity, 
who meet once a week and do regular study on theological concepts for 
active lay ministry. There are 18 such groups in the diocese now with 180 
members, and we anticipate four new study groups in 1984. 



Our program and involvement in MATC is overseen by Fr. Reinecke, 
who is a board member to MATC, giving us personal direction in their 
work. MATC is a major training arm for the diocese. Twenty-six confer- 
ences were attended at reduced rates by clergy and laity in 1983. As a 
member organization, we can provide reduced rates when applications 
are approved by Fr. Reinecke. Our involvement in MATC has expanded 
this year, at the request of the Bishop, to oversee the Diocesan Consultant 
Network, whose 11 clergy and lay members are now certified MATC 
Consultants. They serve congregations, clergy and other diocesan groups 
in assisting with vestry retreats, leadership training, conflict manage- 
ment, search committee procedures and training for congregations seek- 
ing new clergy. They are normally paid by the contracting church or 
group. The Bishop does pay each congregation beginning a search for a 
new rector for the first session with a consultant, as a way of encouraging 
them to use this resource. Contacts for consultants can by made through 
our volunteer coordinator, The Rev. Rod Reinecke, 1117 Braircliff Rd., 
Burlington, NC 27215 (919/584-9453). 

Not of less importance are other responsibilities of this Committee. 
These include conference planning, such as the Summer Adult Confer- 
ence, keynoted this past year by the Rev. Harry Pritchett of Atlanta. Our 
1984 Conference will be keynoted by The Rev. Joseph Russell of Ohio; 
and plans are already begun for the 1985 Conference. We have provided 



Convention Reports 133 



seed money for The Rev. Ken Green to develop a children's camp pro- 
gram in 1984 at the Conference Center. We have approved Conference 
Scholarships for laity to attend certain programs at the Conference 
Center, Kanuga, and other conferences in Province IV. We are develop- 
ing Christian Education curriculum and resource centers at the Diocesan 
House and at St. Paul's, Monroe, for easier availability throughout the 
Diocese. The Education/Liturgy Resource Center in Oxford assists us 
through its own volunteers, with direct-mail service and exhibits 
throughout the Diocese. The audio/visual library originally maintained in 
Oxford has been relocated to the Diocesan House to be expanded under 
the direction of Archdeacon Neff Powell. 

The Rev. Barry Kramer's election to the Christian Educators' Steering 
Committee in Province IV continues our leadership involvement begun 
by this Committee's Chairman. It further acknowledges the recognition 
that ours is one of the strongest volunteer Christian Education Commit- 
tees in the Province.

Report of the Commission 
on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse 

The Diocesan Commission on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse continues 
the process of implementation of the Diocesan Policy on Alcohol and 
Drug Abuse, adopted by the 1982 Diocesan Convention. The process 
sometimes goes more slowly than we would like; however we are mak- 



ing progress. 

During the past year we have— 

•Held two workshops entitled "Alcoholism and Drug Abuse: Treatable 
Illnesses" with 15 priests and 33 lay people. 

•Met with Bishop Estill to work towards the development of an 
Employee Assistance Policy for Diocesan Employees. 

•Prepared guidelines for the establishment of Parish Commissions on 
Alcoholism and Drug Abuse. 

Much remains to be done. It is our hope that in the coming year— 
•We will see many more parishes form Commissions on Alcoholism. 



134 Diocese of North Carolina 

•An Employee Assistance Policy for Diocesan employees will be 
adopted. 

•Education of clergy and laity will continue

Church's Program Fund 123,323 



Received reports from the Treasurer and the Department of Budgets 
that a short-fall in acceptances of the 1984 Church's Program Quotas was 
expected to be at least $48,179. The Council voted to make up this short- 
age in accepted quotas by using the Program Fund Revenue Income that 
is Trust Fund income, whereupon the Council adopted for presentation 
to the Convention the budgets originally proposed on September 13, 
1983. Action was taken to explore the problem of non-acceptances of full 
quotas and seek a solution thereto. The resolution adopted reads as 
follows: 

"Resolved, that the Bishop appoint a sub-committee of the 
Council to explore the area of program quota non-acceptances 
to see if some more realistic sense of responsibility might be 
seen and shared both by the parish not accepting its full quota 
and also by the Council." 

The Bishop's nomination of Mr. John Justice as Communications Of- 
ficer of the Diocese was confirmed. 



138 Diocese of North Carolina 



The Department of History and Records reported that Miss Michelle 
Francis, Archivist, was at work, concentrating primarily on the bishops' 
records and papers. 

The Council approved a recommendation contemplating consultation 
between the departments of Budgets and Mission and Outreach in setting 
priorities for future programs. It also nominated the necessary persons 
for membership on the Board of Directors of the Conference Center as 
provided by Canon 33, Section 2, and voted to hold all undesignated 
funds of the Venture in Mission program for use as part of the con- 
templated companion relationship with the Diocese of Belize. The Coun- 
cil learned from the Bishop that the Rt. Rev. John Burgess, retired Bishop 
of Massachusetts, will assist him in this Diocese from mid-January to 
mid-May of 1984.

Report of the Department 

of Mission and Outreach 

w 

The Department of Mission and Outreach was formed by the 1983 
Convention in response to the restructuring of the Diocese. In com- 
pliance with Canon 16, Section 4(a), the Department is to "be responsible 
for the work of the Council with respect to Church expansion, small con- 
gregations, social ministries, college chaplaincies, hospital chaplaincies, 
the deaf, youth, evangelism, stewardship, communications, and educa- 
tion and training of the clergy and laity." 

We consist of three council members appointed by Bishop Estill, 
together with the Deans and Lay Wardens of the five Convocations. The 
council members are Mr. Sydenham B. Alexander, Jr., Mr. J. Ward Purr- 
ington and The Rev. C. Phillip Craig, Chairperson. 

The first year was one of trying to understand our task and to organize 
our work. On March 25th the council members, together with Bishop 
Estill and Dean Lee of the Central Convocation, met in Chapel Hill to 
plan our first gathering. We realized that we must wait for the election of 



: 



Convention Reports 139 



Lay Wardens in each Convocation before we could constitute the full 
Department, and requested the Bishop to set that process in motion. A 
full meeting of the Departent was set for April 29th at the Chapel of the 
Cross, Chapel Hill. 

On April 29th the Department began to develop its strategy and 
organization. We asked each Commission to submit a copy of their pur- 
pose statement and goals for 1984-85. We set October 18th as the date for 
the first meeting between the Department and the Chairpersons of each 
Commission. Our purpose was to hear from each Commission concern- 
ing their work, budgets and goals to clarify the relationship between the 
Commissions and the Department and to gain an overview of the various 
ministries within our Diocese. It is our further hope that the vision of this 
Department will include a mission strategy for new work in the years 
ahead. We realized that because of the scope of our responsibilities, the 
time needed to elect Lay Wardens and organize our work, it would not be 
possible to be directly involved with the budgeting process for 1984. We 
determined to address that process at the October meeting. 

At the October 18th meeting we received reports from each of our 
Commissions. As they shared their goals and work, we began to ap- 
preciate the scope of ministry in the Diocese of North Carolina. The 
Department will require of each Commission to prepare and present to 
the Department, by April of 1984, their goals and budget estimates for 
1985. We realize that these cannot be final figures by that early date but 
we wish to be thinking in the future and we hope to use those statements 
as a review and evaluation process so that we might be prepared and 
present at the budget hearings in the Fall when the Diocese begins to 
assemble its 1985 budget. To that end, we have requested from the Coun- 
cil that the Chairperson or other qualified members of the Department be 
present during the budget process. We are planning for two meetings 
with the Commission heads during 1984. One will be held in the Spring 
for planning purposes and the other in the Fall, prior to budget time for 
review and evaluation purposes. 

It has been a year of discovery and growth for the Department of Mis- 
sion and Outreach. In relation to the various ministries of the Diocese, 
we summarize our task in three words: generate, moderate and monitor. 
At the present time, we are making no recommendations to the Council 
for any change in our organization. After our second full year of opera- 
tion it may be necessary, because of the enormous scope of our work, to 
subdivide or form a separate department, but for the present time we 
plan to continue with the original design. 






140 Diocese of North Carolina 



As Chairperson, I wish to thank the Department members for their 
work, the various Commissions for their commitment to the ministry of 
this Diocese, and the Council for their patience and encouragement. We 
are blessed with an abundance of talent and it is satisfying to see so much 
accomplishment from our efforts.

Report of the Department of Property 
Management of the Diocesan Council 



The Property Management Department of the Diocesan Council met 
three times during the year. 

ir 

The Department conducted a general review of the real properties 
owned by the Diocese and the trust funds. An analysis was begun of the 
insurance coverage on the various properties and a detailed review of the 
trust funds was begun. Reports of the Investment Committee, a subcom- 
mittee of the Department of Property Management, were reviewed. 

C" 

The capital improvements and major maintenance requirements of the 
Diocesan House were reviewed and maintenance items were authorized 
and a budget item for reserve for major maintenance was recommended. 

r 

It was determined that upon completion of the review of the trust 

funds of the Diocese, the Department would attempt to classify those 

funds as to which current income was important as opposed to those 

funds which would be better served with an objective of growth. 

The Committee will complete a list of real properties held in trust.

Report of the 
Department of Records and History 

The Records and History Department of the Diocesan Council of the 
Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina has met regularly during the past 



Convention Reports 141 



year to supervise, coordinate, and review the work of the Secretary of the 
Convention (including publication of the Journal of the Convention), the 
Registrar of the Diocese, the Historiographer, and the Advisory Commit- 
tee appointed to assist the Registrar and the Historiographer. This depart- 
ment was further instructed to supervise the maintenance of archives 
and preserving and writing the history of the Diocese. 

It was determined at the first meeting of this department that the most 
pressing need at this time was the preservation of the records and ar- 
chives. After much investigative work the members of the department 
presented to the council a proposal to hire an archivist to help preserve 
our historical papers and records. The Council gave its consent at the 
May meeting and Michelle Francis was hired on a contract basis to bring 
the records of the diocese properly up to date. Due to the volume of 
papers to be processed the department further requested of the Diocesan 
Council that the archivist be retained and her salary be placed in the 
budget. This proposal was accepted and will be voted on by the Conven- 
tion in January. The archivist, in the meantime, has continued with the 
work of bringing all papers up-to-date in the proper manner. 

»«* 

The Records and History Department was concerned over the long 
delay on the part of The Communicant staff in getting the Journal publish- 
ed this past year. It is hoped that this can be alleviated next year. 



An area which needs a little more emphasis is the history of the 



The Advisory Committee to assist the Registrar and Historiographer 
has not been appointed at this time but will be at the Convention in 
January. This committee will certainly help the Registrar and the 
Historiographer and will be a great benefit to the entire department. 

I wish to express my deepest thanks to the members of this department 
for the time and energy spent at the meetings and traveling to them. The 
newly structured council works well and everyone has worked hard. It is 
with some sadness that I leave the council but I am sure the work will 
progress well under the incoming leadership.

Report of the Department of Budgets 



Bishop Estill, Delegates, and Guests: 

Copies of the proposed budget for 1984 have been included in pre- 
Convention packets and may be found on page 1 of the Convention Issue 
of The Communicant. 

Quite early this morning, I was reflecting on the fact that this being the 
168th Annual Convention—there have been 167 budgets previously 
presented throughout the history of the Diocese of North Carolina. It oc- 
curred to me that likely each of the 167 previous budget chairmen and I 
share a common feeling at this time— and that is: "Lord, help me to get 
this approved without a lot of hassle!" 

limn , 

The preparation of the budget for 1984 has been unique for it is the first 

to be produced under the revised structure and organization. It involved 

considerably earlier deadlines all through the process. This could not 

have been accmplished without splendid cooperation on the part of the 

many department, commission and committee chairpersons who got 

their well-conceived budgetary requests in on time! I want to thank the 

other members of the commission— The Rev. Bart Sherman and Hyman 



Phillips, Bishop Estill and especially our Diocesan Treasurer and 
Business Administrator, Letty Magdanz, for the many, many hours spent 

I,,,, 



in the budget hearings and in the resulting deliberations. 



Both of the budgets— for the Episcopal Maintenance Fund and the 
Church's Program Fund— have been presented to delegates and alter- 
nates at two meetings in each of the five convocations and on each occa- 
sion Mrs. Magdanz has been present to answer questions and to explain 
any and all line items in the two budgets. Consequently, it is our belief 
that the delegates to the 168th Annual Convention have been given 
thorough understandings of the budgets. Nevertheless, we have recorded 
the questions and concerns brought up at the convocation meetings and 
will attempt to cover them in our commentary. It is our hope that all 
delegates will leave the Convention with confidence in and a good feeling 
about the 1984 budgets. Consequently, at the conclusion of this presenta- 
tion, there will be an opportunity to ask questions about any item.

Convention Reports 143 



The Episcopal Maintenance Fund 

Items #1, #2, and #3 comprise the Bishop's salary, housing and travel 
package. The total package for 1984 is $66,490 compared to $62,000 last 
year. This is based on an increase of 8.5%. This figure was arrived at 
through a cost-of-living increase of 4.00%, an increase in F.I.C.A. (Social 
Security) of 2.7% and incremental increase of 1.8%. All staff clergy 
received this basic 8.5% increase. All non-clergy staff received an in- 
crease of 6.00%. This compares with 6.5% last year. Incidentally, the 
Diocese of North Carolina now ranks 19th in clergy salaries of the more 
than 100 dioceses. Therefore, we are just in the top 20%. 

New Items 

*w 

Item #21: Diocesan House Building Repair/Renovation. A total of $10,000 
has been budgeted for major repair and preventive maintenance. This 
should build up to $20,000 which is deemed realistic and adequate. 

I 

Item 34: Archives. The other new item is that covering Archives as 
described in the Bishop's address. This amount of $18,430 includes the 
archivist's salary and supplies. 

"3 

The total of $405,046 represents an increase of $46,297 or 12.9% of 



t 



which the majority ($28,430) involves the new items. Assessments from 
the churches across the Diocese amount to $373,246 (and I would remind 
you that these were paid at a rate of 100.0% for 1983). The balance would 
come from investment and trust income and interest as listed. 

I might add that the Department tried to keep the balance under 
$400,000 but with the new items, there was just no way this could be ac- 
complished. 

Mr. Chairman, we ask for approval of the 1984 Episcopal Maintenance 
Fund Budget. 

We will be glad to answer any questions on the Episcopal Maintenance 
Fund. 

The Church's Program Fund 

The Budget Department received requests totaling well over $1 
million. However, we were determined to keep the budget under $1 



144 Diocese of North Carolina 



million. In spite of the fact that five new items are included, the budget is 
proposed at $975,536, an increase of 3.37%. 

New Items 

Items 11 and 12: The new items 11 and 12 which involve new 
ministries at A&T University and Bennett College in Greensboro amount 
to $4,800 ($2,400 respectively). 

Item 25: Item 25, Other Program Funds, has allotted $2,300 for pro- 
grams started in new areas by our new program director. 

Item 30: Item 30 allots $6,600 for the new Communications Commis- 
sion. This program is expanding into new areas of communication for the 
Diocese. 

Item 41: Item 41 involves $2,500 for the Commission on Aging. 

The funding for the budget will come from quota acceptances of 
$912,198 and the balance from investment and trust income and interest. 

Mr. Chairman, we ask for approval of the proposed 1984 budget for the 
Church's Program Fund. 

We will now answer questions on any item in the proposed budget for 
the Church's Program Fund. 

We thank you for your kind indulgence and let me say for the 
members of the Budget Department that we appreciate the cooperation 
that we have received throughout the budgetary process. Thank you!

Services: 

The annual homecoming service was held on August 28, 1983. The ser- 
vice was conducted by the Rev. Donald Frazier, St. Thomas, Sanford, 
assisted by the Rev. I Mayo Little, St. Luke's, Salisbury and the Rev. 



150 Diocese of North Carolina 



Willis Rosenthal, Church of the Good Shepherd, Cooleemee. Approx- 
imately 250 people attended the service. An old-fashioned dinner under 
the oaks followed. 

Restoration Progress: 

As a result of interest sparked by the Bicentennial Year, 1976, a restora- 
tion program was initiated. Since no extensive repairs had been made 
since the church was built in 1840, the following were undertaken: 

1. The replacement of all sills 

2. The replacement of all floor joists 

3. The replacement of 20% of the flooring on the ground floor 

4. The gallery, which was closed after the Civil War, was opened and a 
floor was laid in the entire gallery. 

5. The weatherboarding was repaired and replaced as needed. 

6. The tin roof was removed and was replaced with hand-split cedar 
shingles. 

7. The foundation of native stones was repaired. 

8. The shutters were replaced and handmade shutter hinges were in- 
stalled. 

As a result of a $3,500 grant from the N.C. Department of Cultural 
Resources plus a matching grant of $3,500 from the Episcopal Founda- 
tion, a well was drilled and a dependency was built on the property to 
house a pump, water tank, fire hose and a restroom. 

Financial Activity and Contributions: 

Balance in Bank August 13, 1976 $1,099.20 

Offering, Memorials and interest to date 15,203.04

Convention Reports 151 



Summary: 

In addition to the annual homecoming services the last Sunday in each 
August, St. Andrew's has been the scene of several weddings, Christen- 
ings, morning and evening prayer services and interdenominational ser- 
vices. In 1981 St. Andrew's building and church yard were used in the 
filming of "Thunder in Carolina," a film about the early settlers, for 
educational television. A group of 90 researchers and teachers of archi- 
tectural history from across the United States, Canada and England 
visited St. Andrew's in 1982. 

The Commission on St. Andrew's encourages you to visit this historic 
site. We will be glad to arrange for special times and services. 



Guy W. Etheridge 



Report of the Commission 
on Historic St. John's, Williamsboro 



Our efforts on behalf of this diocesan institution increased in 1983 and 
we are delighted with the results. This "Mother Church" of our Diocese 
has been kept in good repair by the Committee and over 500 persons 
visited it during our Sunday openings from May to October. Each Sunday 
was hosted by a member of the Committee or team members from the 
newly formed Guild of St. John's. 

We held several services at St. John's in 1983 with the Reverend Dr. 
John Wall, Associate Professor of English at North Carolina State Univer- 
sity, Raleigh, being our speaker at the annual October homecoming ser- 
vice. Other services included two weddings, a lessons and carols service 
in Advent, and services by Episcopal churches which came to celebrate 
summer Eucharists. A new service was an Ascension Evensong spon- 
sored for the churches of our upper Central region with the Reverend 
Peter Lee, Dean, being the preacher. 

The committee notes with regret and sadness the loss by death of David 
Evans, an active Presbyterian and a resident of Williamsboro. David was 
one of the most dedicated committee members. The Committee also ac- 
knowledges the death of Mrs. Reddie Wortham, who supported her late 
husband in all his endeavors to oversee restoration of St. John's. These 
persons' ministries to our committee and the Diocese are noted with 
thankfulness.

Report of the Commission of 
Friends of St. Mary's Episcopal Chapel 

Services: The annual Homecoming Service of St. Mary's Episcopal 
Chapel was held on October 9, 1983. During 1982, there were two wed- 
dings in the Chapel but other services have not been feasible due to 
restoration work. The Committee of St. Mary's Chapel and all associated 
with St. Mary's were delighted to have The Reverend Albert Fisher, 
Director of Duke University Endowment Rural Church Division, as our 
minister for the Homecoming Service. The Reverend Bill Price con- 
ducted the service, which was attended by approximately 75 and fol- 
lowed by "dinner-on-the-grounds." 

C 

Financial Activity and Contributions: From 1967 to 1980, Friends of St. 

Mary's gave approximately $15,000. In 1980, contributions slightly ex- 
ceeded $21,000. In 1981, The Chapel fund received from the Diocese the 
proceeds of the sale of land to the St. Mary's Country Day School, some 
years ago, in the amount of $5,900. Receipts from a fundraising letter and 
the annual Homecoming Service in 1981 were approximately $2,500. 
During 1982, through Homecoming Day, receipts were about $5,500. In 
June of 1983, an anonymous donor offered to contribute $2,500 and 
matching money was contributed by others. Over one-half of this 
amount was contributed at Homecoming and indications are favorable 
towards meeting this challenge. Pledges have been made to restore the 
altar rail, altar furnishings, and several pews. 

|; 

Progress in 1983 and proposed goal for 1984: The work on the interior 
walls has been finished except for painting, which is to be done in a final 
phase. New, improved hardware and lock sets have been installed, 
which improve security. All light fixtures have also been installed. Of 
these items listed on the 9/1/81 letter from Mr. Isley to Mr. Weeks, the 
status of those under "first priority" is as follows: 

a. numbers 1, 2, 5, 6, and 8 have been completed. 

b. number 7 continues in process. 

c. numbers 3, 8, and 9 should be finished from funds of the 1983 drive. 

d. numbers 4 and 10 are expected to be finished by October, 1984. 

During 1983, we discovered a moisture problem that has been traced to 
the foundations of the building. The remedy for this unexpected difficul- 
ty is to waterproof the foundations, which should occur in the spring of 
1984. Subsequently, the floor will be refinished and the painting com- 
pleted. It is intended also that the work under 11 first priority will be 



Convention Reports 153 



completed by Homecoming in October, 1984. Additional funds will be 
needed to complete items of second and third priority. 

Bequest of deceased: Hugh Conway Browning, one of the original five of 
the St. Mary's Restoration Committee, died June 4, 1983. He willed 
$1,000 to St. Mary's for a perpetual care fund for the cemetery with the 
specification that said fund would be officially established. This trans- 
action should be complete in the early part of 1984.

Report of the Commission 
on Christian Social Ministries 



The Commission on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse, under the direction 
of Mrs. Irma Hoffman, was budgeted by the 167th Convention, and con- 
tinues to do excellent work. 



This year, Christian Social Ministries has spun off another commission, 
Ageing, under the chairmanship of the Reverend Philip Brown, approved 
as a commission by the last Convention, and coming to this present Con- 
vention for budget. In addition, Mrs. Nancy Craig, Chairman of the Task 
Force on Hunger, will seek commission status for their committee in 
1984.

The Reverend Arthur Kortheuer, Chairman of our Diocesan Peace Net- 
work, continues to do an excellent job in his work with issues concerning 
Central America, the arms race, and the question of nuclear freeze. Our 
diocese, in conjunction with two other judicatories, this fall sponsored a 
day's conference in Raleigh which looked into the question of the Church 
as a sanctuary for political refugees. 

The dispute settlement center in Raleigh, Mediation Services of Wake 
County, supported by CSM, has completed training of its first volunteers * 
and has subsequently settled its first cases. 

Work among migrants continues to strengthen, now very much in con- 
junction with the Diocese of East Carolina. Both dioceses jointly sponsor 
a full-time outreach worker, and have just received a UTO grant for the 
purchase of a bus which will take workers from the fields and camps into 



154 Diocese of North Carolina 



the Tri-County Community Health Clinic. The Migrant Clothing Shelter 
continues to move an unbelievable amount of clothing through the ef- 
forts of volunteers from many parishes in both dioceses. In addition this 
year, a lunch program for workers and children was begun at the clinic. 

In consultation with the ECW, the CSM Office has convened a group of 
Episcopalians, mostly women, to identify and advise CSM on issues 
especially concerning women. It is chaired by Mrs. Sally S. Cone.

Episcopalians working in eight soup kitchens throughout our diocese 
are now feeding a thousand to fifteen hundred street people daily. 

In addition to the food banks in Charlotte, Winston-Salem, and Ral- 
eigh, there are now organizations in Asheville, Wilmington and Elizabeth 
City, which hopefully will spin off their own food banks.

St. Paul's, Monroe has this past year begun a nutritionally-balanced 
food packaging program for people who "fall between the cracks," most 
of whom are referred by the Department of Social Services.

Outreach in this diocese in many cases is made possible by monies pro- 
vided by the Parish Grant Commission. This office continues to be 
grateful for these imaginative and hard-working people under the direc- 
tion of Mr. Alexander Rankin. 



The Episcopal Church Center in New York has asked CSM of this 
diocese to manage a National Conference which will model ten programs 
working directly with poor people on the parish level. This conference 
will be held in May of 1984 at Kanuga. 

The above are but a few highlights of many of the ongoing activities in 
our diocese. On a personal note, let me close this report by saying, as I 
move around the diocese, I am more and more excited by the growing 
number of Episcopalians who are not only willing to reach out to the less 
fortunate, but who see this as the essence of ministry!

Convention Reports 155 

Convention Address of the Director 
of Christian Social Ministries 

I have just finished a book by a former seminary professor of mine, 
Charlie Price. Charlie taught a good many of the clergy in this room. The 
name of the book is A Matter of Faith. I recommend it— besides, it only 
has three chapters. One of the thoughts that struck me was his descrip- 
tion of spirit— more particularly, human spirit. For he said human spirit 
always precedes us, to herald that which is to follow. It does so with a 
glance, a touch, a word, almost any body movement. 

Charlie illustrated this with Peter's denial of Jesus. After the third 
denial, we read in Luke: "And the Lord turned and looked at Peter." And 
that was all, for nothing else was needed. Spirit really does precede. I can 
vividly rmemember getting similar looks from my parents when I was a 
child— that old "you've let me down" look. They even managed to shoot 
me with a few of those after I was grown. I had them from others, as 
well. You have had them, too. 

r* 

About four years ago, there was a trial in Marion, North Carolina. The 
prosecutor was going for first-degree murder and the death penalty. The 
accused was supposed to have taken three lives, and there seemed to be 
ample evidence to support the charge. 

The defense attorney, knowing that I was opposed to capital punish- 
ment, asked if I would be willing to talk with the defendant at Dorothea 
Dix Hospital and to testify at the trial. I agreed to do both. I did not like 
the trial, because there was no spirit. Only plastic questions accompanied 
by plastic answers, mine included. The court seemed devoid of life and 
wanted it that way. 

Toward the end of the trial, the defendant's daughter, age seven or 
eight, was put on the stand to testify as to the relationship between her 
father and herself. More plastic questions and answers. 

However, as she got down from the stand to return to her place, she 
crossed in front of her father, stopped, looked him in the face as her eyes 
welled up with tears. I could tell something was going to happen. I could 
tell— in Charlie Price's words— that her spirit was getting ready to 
precede her. She screamed out, "Don't kill my daddy! Please don't kill 
my daddy!" And then she rushed into his arms. 



I* 



156 Diocese of North Carolina 



The whole courtroom was transformed. I immediately looked into the 
eyes of the people on the jury. It was as if they all had had facelifts. Then, 
I looked at the prosecutor, whose jaw seemed to be on the floor. There 
was a newspaper reporter next to me, and she said, "No electric chair for 
him." Turned out she was right. 

What amazing power that little girl's spirit had. I am convinced it turn- 
ed a very carefully planned legal strategy into near-prattle. And changed 
her father's fate from death to life. 

By now, I am sure you have guessed that I want to talk with you about 
capital punishment. You might think I am out of my mind, because if 
you are like the rest of the people in our state, 78 percent of you are in 



c 

II- 

f " 

favor of capital punishment. 

Be that as it may, there are many reasons why I feel that this question 
is in order: 

p! 

First: It certainly lies within the parameters of my office and its charge. 



Second: Both this diocese and the national church have gone on recor- 
din opposition to the death penalty, with appropriate resolutions. 

Third: Almost every western nation has abolished it, including 
England, France, Canada, Spain, Italy, West Germany and the 
Netherlands. 

Fourth: A good friend of mine, Jim Craven— an attorney and prominent 
layman at St. Joseph's, Durham— preached a sermon a couple of weeks 
ago in opposition to capital punishment; I thought the sermon was 
outstanding. 

Last: This past Wednesday, January 25, Bishop Estill convened a group 
of religious leaders from throughout the state who issued a strong state- 
ment to Governor Hunt, calling for the killing of prisoners to cease. 

But the main reason is that I want the spirit that precedes us to be one 
of mercy, not revenge. In a word, I would like us to join with the spirit 
that preceded forth from that little girl. 

What are people like who kill others and who are on Death Row? 

One of my heroes in the Carter Administration was Griffin Bell, the At- 
torney General. You may remember that he had the toughest time get- 



Convention Reports 157 



ting Senate confirmation, but, to my way of thinking, turned out to be 
one of the stars. A reporter once asked Griffin Bell this question— I can't 
quote it exactly, but the sense of it was something like this: "Why are 
there so many in prison? Can't we just let some of them out?" I'll never 
forget his reply, especially in his accent. He said, "I just tell you the truth, 
there are an awful lot of mean people in there." 

So make no mistake, I agree with Griffin Bell: There are an awful lot of 
mean people in prison and I don't want to let them out until such time 
that we learn a lot more about human behavior than we know now. No 
matter how long that takes. Furthermore, in my opinion, the case for the 
abolition of capital punishment is set back years by those who take the 
position that murderers are poor misunderstood souls. I agree, they are 
misunderstood souls and until we can understand them, then I want 
them in, not out. Case in point: the murderer in California who recently 
was let out after only five years. 

» 

It is my understanding that Rufus Edminston, our State Attorney 
General, said that even if capital punishment is not a deterrent— and I 
think that most significant studies show that it is not— we should still 
have it because society is entitled to its revenge. 



3 

I would like to address this question of revenge with a capital punish- 
ment case which pales all others: that of Adolph Eichmann. You 
remember that he was the chief architect of, dreamed up, planned for, 
and carried out the systematic extinction of over six million Jews during 
World War II. 

I want to look at his execution through the eyes of Martin Buber, the 
Jewish existentialist who fought underground against Hitler and the 
Nazis until he finally escaped to Israel. He is widely known, of course, 
for his book, / and Thou. Speaking shortly after Eichmann was captured 
and executed, Buber said that the Jews had made three mistakes: 

First, they had gone to South America like thieves in the night, like 
vigilantes, to capture him. Buber did not approve of that. 

Second, he said that Israel should not have tried Eichmann alone. His 
crime was so demented, so immense, that it was a crime against all 
humanity and, therefore, should have been presided over by a world 
tribunal. 



158 Diocese of North Carolina 



Third, Buber said it was wrong to take anyone's life, including 
Eichmann's. 

When asked what he thought should have been done to Eichmann, 
Buber replied, "Put him to work in a kibbutz with young people." 

Why did Buber say that strange thing? Because he believed that the 
human being can sometimes become so alienated from himself and his 
fellow humans that he loses any sense of right and wrong. He becomes 
amoral— non-human. Buber felt that if Eichmann worked with young 
people, possibly, just possibly, he could re-enter his own humanity and 
begin to feel contrition. And perhaps seek forgiveness.

Killing is wrong. It is horrible because it is the zenith of finality, 
whether it be the brutal murder of the three officers by James Hutchins, 
or— yes!— even of Hutchins himself. Anyone!

If, then, revenge is wrong, what is our responsibility? It seems to me 
there are two areas that need to be addressed before we can assign that 
responsibility: 



Whoever said, "Why do we continually kill people who kill people, to 
prove that killing people is wrong?" went to the heart of the matter. 



3 ! ' 

First, the question of containment and management of life in every 

aspect, from the cradle to the grave— including those on Death Row. 

Second, I believe that we, as members of the Family of Man, are 
charged with the responsibility of enhancing both the quality and the 
continuance of all life. 

I believe that the second question— of the beginning and end of life— is 
a gift, a gift from God. I want to leave this gift, both its coming and going, 
in God's hands. 

If we accept the Judeo-Christian teaching that we are always responsi- 
ble to, and for, each other, then to kill prisoners— those whom we con- 
tain—kills twice more: 



Convention Reports 159 



It kills our mistakes. 

It kills our hopes. 

We desperately need both kept alive, because we learn from our 
mistakes, and we go forth from our hope. Let us go forth from here, 
preceded by such a spirit that will always hallow life, with the certain 
knowledge in our hearts that Jesus Christ would never, could never, take 
the life of anyone.

Report of the Investment Committee 

The Investment Committee is responsible for the investment of the 
Common Trust Fund of the Diocese, which is a pooled fund for a large 
number of individual trusts, and a Fund for the Thompson Orphanage. 
These two funds are actively managed by the Trust Department of 
NCNB National Bank and have been for a number of years. 

The primary goal of our Investment Policy is the preservation of 
capital, with a secondary goal of achieving sufficient capital appreciation 
to protect against the erosion of economic inflation. An investment objec- 
tive is to achieve a reasonable current income that does not interfere with 
the preservation of capital. 



The specific investment objective of the Common Trust Fund is an an- 
nual total return (current income plus capital appreciation or deprecia- 
tion) of 9%, measured over the most recent five-year period; with the an- 
nual current income portion maintained at a minimum level of 5^2%. 

Listed below is a comparison of the value and income on each share of 
the Common Trust Fund for the last five years as of September 30th: 

1979 1980 1981 1982 1983

During the past year, the portion of the Fund invested in equities was 
increased, and the portion of the Fund invested in fixed income securities 
decreased accordingly. Reflecting the favorable market conditions of the 



168 Diocese of North Carolina 



past year, the market value per share increased 14.6% to $19.64 per 
share— an all-time high. This shift in portfolio mix plus lower interest 
rates resulted in a decrease in current income from $1.31 per share to 
$1.16 per share. This represents current income at a rate of 5.9% of 
market value. The total return for the Fund for the twelve months ended 
September 30th was 22.4% 

As of September 30, 1983, the funds supervised by the Investment 
Committee were invested as follows:

Thompson Orphanage: 

Principal Cash 
Revolving Note 
Government Bonds 



The fixed income securities in both Funds are largely in government 
bonds with maturities ranging from one to seven years. The equity por- 
tion in the Common Trust Fund is in high-quality common stocks which 
we believe have the potential for further capital appreciation in the com- 
ing year, but which also produce current income at a level to meet our 
target of a minimum 5Vz% current return for the total Fund.

Report of the Chancellor of the Diocese 

The following constitutes the report of the activities of the undersigned 
Chancellor covering the period from the time of his designation by 
Bishop Estill to be the Chancellor subject to the confirmation of the 
Diocesan Convention, through such confirmation in January 1983, and 
through the calendar year 1983. 



Convention Reports 169 



1. Attended in September 1982 at New Orleans the meeting of the 
Chancellors of the various dioceses of the Church who were present 
there at General Convention. 

2. Investigated a "crank" letter of complaint directed to the Bishop 
from Wilson, identified its source, and concluded that the writer was 
harmless. 

3. On the first weekend in November 1982, attended a conference of 
the Chancellors of the various Dioceses of the Fourth Province at the con- 
ference center of the Diocese of Tennessee at Monteagle. 

4. Unravelled a misunderstanding with First Home Federal Savings 
and Loan Association of Winston-Salem regarding the investment of prin- 
cipal and the handling of income in the Isabel M. Peebles Trust, of which 
the Diocese owns the remainder interest subject to a prior life estate. 

5. Reviewed with a parish priest the canonical requirements for a 
valid congregational meeting and vestry election. 

6. At its request, served with the Diocesan Finance Committee in its 
screening process in connection with the selection of a new Diocesan 
Business Manager. 



■* 



7. Advised Bishop Estill regarding the rental of an apartment for the 
use of the retired Bishop of Navajoland, while in the Diocese serving 
temporarily as "Assistant Bishop." 

8. With the approval of the Bishop, the Chancellor has undertaken a 
systematic review and study of all the trust funds presently held by or for 
the benefit of the Diocese. Most of these trusts are held by the Diocese 
itself and are invested in its Common Trust Fund. A listing of those so 
held and invested, their present principal value, their current and ac- 
cumulated income, and the current expenditures made from such in- 
come, can be found elsewhere in the Journal Likewise, a listing of those 
few trusts that are administered by others, together with the total current 
and accumulated income therefrom held by the Diocese, and the total 
current expenditures made from such income, can be found elsewhere in 
the Journal 

This study and review involves, first, an examination of each trust 
document itself and any background material that may exist, in order 
properly to interpret the document and to determine for what purposes, 
by whom and how that trust's income can and should be expended. 
Secondly, an examination also is being made of how its income has, in 
fact, been spent or not spent over the past few years. An attempt is then 
made to reconcile the two, or to identify unacceptable variances. Follow- 



170 Diocese of North Carolina 



ing this, the Bishop and/or the Diocesan Council are advised in writing of 
the Chancellor's interpretation of the trust and his opinion as to what are 
proper expenditures from it, both in general for their future guidance, 
and specifically in answer to questions that have been asked concerning 
the propriety of certain contemplated particular expenditures. In each of 
the larger trusts that generate income of considerable consequence, con- 
sideration is given to, among other things, whether or not its purposes 
might be better served by its income being actually budgeted by the 
Diocesan Council, rather than spent on an ad hoc basis. 

There are more than 60 of these trusts. They vary greatly in size. Each 
is different from all the others. Some are difficult to interpret. Others are 
easy. Some have no interpretation problems. Necessarily, this study is an 
ongoing one that will take a good deal of time to complete. Generally, the 
larger ones which appear more difficult to interpret and which by their 
terms are generally supportive of areas in which the Diocese has im-

p 



The Chancellor's written report on each trust is made to the Bishop for 
his and the Council's use, a copy goes into the Diocese's file of the trust, 
and a copy is retained in the Chancellor's files. 

Those trusts reported on to date (referring to them by the names by 
which they are identified in the Journal) are: Louis W. Alston, Carolyn S. 
Mayer, Elsie B. Krebs, Tullie Grimes, Anne Cameron Reynolds, Martha 
Clark, Bynum, Emma J. Karrer, Alexander B. Andrews, Rena H. Clark, 
Annie M. Winstead, Mattie Clark Williamson, Bishop's Discretionary 
Fund. 

9. At the request of the Bishop, the Chancellor made a detailed study 
of the Saint Stephen's Episcopal Church Foundation (Durham) in the 
light of the problems that have arisen because the trust's present income 
exceeds the needs for which the trust was originally established, being, in 
summary, the support and maintenance of the parish's sanctuary and its 
environs, its related facilities and activities, and its Memorial Garden. 
The Vestry of the parish and the Trustees of the Foundation have been in 
agreement that the purposes of the Foundation should be enlarged to en- 
compass other worthy uses to which such surplus income might be ap- 
plied, but have disagreed as to which body should make the final deci- 
sion on such expanded uses. This disagreement has been exacerbated 
particularly because of canonical responsibilities imposed on the Vestry. 
In an effort to resolve their differences, the Chancellor and the Bishop 
have met and negotiated extensively with Mr. Frank Kenan, a represen- 
tative of the Trustees, Mr. John Thomas, Senior Warden of the parish, 
and Mr. A. William Kennon, Attorney for the Trustees. As a result of 
these negotiations, an agreement in principle has now been reached for 
the beginning of an action seeking a declaratory judgment and a reforma- 



Convention Reports 171 



tion and modification of the Trust Indenture to enlarge the purposes for 
which such surplus income can be expended to include, in summary, 
Christian outreach and other legitimate functions and needs of the 
Church extraneous to the parish's immediate environment and not now 
embraced within the original Trust Indenture, such expanded expen- 
ditures to be made upon the recommendation of a majority of the 
members of a committee composed of three members of the parish 
Vestry and three members of the Trustees. At the present time, such an 
action is being prepared for filing by the Trustees' attorney. 



11. Advised a parish priest as to the North Carolina statute requiring 
any minister officiating at a marriage actually to have in hand a proper 
marriage license prior to performing the marriage ceremony, and that the 
consequences of not complying with this requirement make the minister 
guilty of a misdemeanor and subject to a possible fine of $200. 

12. Conferred with a parish priest relating to the forthcoming marriage 
of a couple, one of whom has been previously married, and was divorced 
in the Dominican Republic, cautioning him that such divorces are 
suspect generally, and particularly so unless they are based on a 
legitimate residence there of one party and personal service on or ap- 
pearance by the defendant. 

13. Advised the Bishop his opinion that if a person duly baptized and a 
communicant in good standing should, in this posture, voluntarily 
remove himself or herself from the rolls of his or her parish, accept bap- 
tism in a church that may be considered heretical, and thereafter present 
himself or herself at the communion rail to receive Holy Communion at 
the hands of a Priest of the Church, nothing else appearing, the Priest 
would be justified in administering it to the person on the theory that 
such presentation is at least some evidence that the person considered 
that his or her baptism in the Church continues to have meaning, and 
that any wrongdoing involved in such administration under these cir- 



«ii 



10. Advised the Chairman of the Investment Committee of the Baker 
Fund Committee of Holy Trinity Church, Greensboro, that it is entirely 
proper, under the canons, for a parish to invest endowment funds 
belonging to it in the Diocesan Common Trust Fund, to be held in and in- 
vested by that fund for the benefit of the parish, and that such investment 
can be accomplished by means of a simple declaratory document ex- 
ecuted by the Wardens and Vestry of the parish, and accepted by the 
Diocesan Council through its Department of Property Management and 
its Investment Committee. 



172 Diocese of North Carolina 



cumstances would be with the receiver and not with the administering 
priest. (Pertinent citations are Title I, Canon 16, Sections 1, 2, 3 and 6 of 
the National Church, Canon 30 (old number 25), Section 3(a) of the 
Diocese, Articles XXV and XXIX of the Articles of Religion.) 

14. Confirmed to a parish priest a previous ruling of the former 
Chancellor that the designation of church property as an historic site 
under an appropriate statute or ordinance by an Historic Site Commis- 
sion, does not require the canonical consent of the Bishop, acting with the 
advice and consent of the Standing Committee, even though it is an en- 
cumbrance on the property, since such designation constitutes State ac- 
tion and not the voluntary action of a vestry or congregation. 

15. Studied the statement entitled "Diocesan House Employee Policy" 
adopted by the Diocesan Council on May 5, 1983, and advised the 
Diocesan Business Manager that, despite its requirement of mandatory 
retirement by lay employees of the Diocese at age 65, the Diocese cannot 
sustain a required retirement age of less than 70 under the present terms 
of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act. 

16. Advised the Secretary of the Diocese that, in applying the 
canonical prohibition against the re-election of a member of the Board of 
Trustees of the Diocesan Conference Center whose immediately prior 
service has been for at least three years, until the lapse of at least one year 
following such service, only elected service should be counted and not 
service prior to 1982 on the initial board appointed by the Bishop. (Canon 
33). 

17. Advised the Secretary of the Diocese that, under Article VIII, Sec- 
tion 1 of the Constitution of the Diocese, a member of the Standing Com- 
mittee elected to fill an unexpired term is not eligile for re-election until 
one year has elapsed following the expiration of that term. 

18. Expressed his opinion to the Secretary of the Diocese that, aside 
from a Rector or Priest-in-Charge who is entitled to preside at congrega- 
tional and vestry or mission committee meetings, and to break tie votes, 
an ordained person, whether active or retired, by virtue of such ordina- 
tion, is disqualified to be a voting or office-holding member of a con- 
gregation or to be a member of either a Diocesan or a General Conven- 
tion other than in the clerical order. 

19. Conferred with Henry G. Connor, a layman of St. Timothy's 
Church, Wilson, concerning the proposal in that parish to raise a fund 
and place it in trust to create income to be used to sponsor a permanent 



Convention Reports 173 



series of lectures in honor and memory of Rev. John A. Gray, deceased, a 
former Rector of that parish. Advised Mr. Connor that there are no 
canonical objections to this process so long as it does not interfere with 
the parish's financial or other canonical obligations to the Diocese. The 
trust agreement proposed to be used in this instance was examined and 
approved by the Chancellor. 

20. On the first weekend in November 1983, attended with the Bishop 
and our wives, and participated as a panelist at, the Conference of the 
Chancellors of the various Dioceses of the Fourth Province at the Con- 
ference Center of the Diocese of South Carolina on Seabrook Island south 
of Charleston. Extended an invitation that was accepted for the con- 
ference to meet in November 1984 at our Conference Center at Browns 
Summit. 

21. For the Board of Directors of the Episcopal Home For The Ageing, 
Inc., drafted a proposed amendment to the corporation's by-laws to pro- 
vide that any elected director who has served consecutively two full 
three-year terms is ineligible for re-election until the lapse of one year 
following the expiration of his or her second term. Advised the Executive 
Director the required procedure for the adoption of this amendment by 

the Board. 

in 

22. Advised the Bishop that in order for a man and a woman, 
previously married to each other but divorced, to remarry each other in 
the Church, the officiating minister must comply with the provisions of 
Title* I, Canon 17 of the Episcopal Church entitled "Of the Solemnization 
of Holy Matrimony." Further advised him that the provisions of Title I, 
Canon 18 are not applicable under these facts. 

23. Aside from the foregoing specific matters, the Chancellor at 
various times during the year has conferred with and given informal ad- 
vice to the Bishop and other diocesan officials, clergy and lay people, on 
various matters of law arising in the administration of diocesan affairs.

Report of the Murdoch Memorial Society 

The Francis J. Murdoch Memorial Society is established by Canon 
XVII of the Constitution and Canens of the Diocese to administer a Trust 
established in 1912 by the late Miss Margaret Murdoch of Charleston, 



174 Diocese of North Carolina 



S.C., in memory of her brother, the Reverend Francis Johnstone Mur- 
doch, Rector of St. Luke's, Salisbury, N.C., from 1872 until his death in 
1909. 

The Society was organized for the purpose of making loans to Episcopal 
students enrolled in Seminary. The loans are made after consideration of 
the financial status and overall need of the applicant, whose goal must be 
ordination to the Priesthood of the Episcopal Church. Although the Trust 
document does not so specify, the Society has limited consideration to 
Seminarians from this Diocese since funds are quite limited. The Loans 
are cancelled upon a recipient's ordination to the Diaconate. If a person 
fails to be ordained, the loans become payable in five years. 

The Murdoch Fund has a total of 1686 shares of Common Stock in the 
Common Trust Fund of the Diocese. The market value per share as of 
August 31, 1983 was $19.59. The income per share averaged 1983 was 
.290957. Income paid in 1983 was $1,962.21. Balance on hand in the trust 
fund at September 30, 1983 is $7,272.97. 

The Committee has awarded two loans for 1983: $500.00 to Edward 
Scott at Virginia Theological Seminary and $1,000.00 to Timothy E. Kim- 
brough at General Theological Seminary in New York. Both applicants 
are members of the Diocese of North Carolina and fell within our 
guidelines. 

Funds available in 1984 will be $5,772.97. Assuming that we will 
receive another $2,000.00 interest in 1984 (which is the approximate in- 
terest we have received in past years), we should have $7,772.97 to be 
dispensed in 1984.

Report of the North Carolina 
Episcopal Church Foundation 

The North Carolina Episcopal Church Foundation, Inc. was established 
in 1955 for the purpose of aiding in the expansion of the Church in the 
Diocese. Funds are available to parishes and missions and to other in- 
stitutions owned by the Diocese for: erection of buildings, acquisitions of 
buildings and property, and repairs, renovations and improvements to 
existing facilities. 



Convention Reports 175 



Low-interest-rate loans are available to parishes and missions up to a 
maximum of $60,000, repayable in ten years. During 1981, for wholly- 
owned Diocesan institutions, the Board of Directors raised the maximum 
limit of loans to $200,000. Grants are also available on a limited basis, up 
to a maximum of $5,000 for the same purposes. All applications are 
reviewed on an individual basis and decisions based on the need of the 
applicant and funds available. Currently, the interest rate for parishes 
and institutions is six percent and for missions five percent. 

During the past year, the Board of Directors of the Foundation ap- 
proved the following: 

Loans: 

St. Matthew's, Kernersville $ 60,000.00 

All Saints', Warrenton 2,000.00 

St. Elizabeth's, King 60,000.00

Report of the Trustees of the Diocese 

January 20, 1983: 

The Trustees of the Diocese met formally at the Diocesan House 
January 20, 1983. The Trustees advised Bishop Estill that they would in- 
terpose no objection to plans of St. Matthew's Mission in Kernersville to 
contract for the construction of a building for the church. 

In response to a request from St. Barnabas' Mission, Greensboro, the 
Trustees authorized the payment of $1,310.00 and accumulated interest 
received on account of an easement through the church property to the 
treasurer of St. Barnabas' upon the agreement of that mission to use the 
funds only for capital purposes. 

The Trustees directed that check received in payment for mission 
property in Siler City be deposited in the common trust funds of the 
Diocese pending reorganization of the mission in Siler City. 

Upon the request of Mr. Julian P. Moore, a member of Saint Luke's, 
Yanceyville, the Trustees discussed the disposition of funds derived from 
assets of Christ Church, Milton. Those funds had been transferred to the 
Episcopal Church Foundation in conformity with the Canons of the 
Diocese. It now appearing that the Christ Church congregation had trans- 
ferred to Yanceyville, the Trustees adopted a resolution requesting the 
Episcopal Church Foundation to return the funds received from Christ 
Church, Milton, and that the custodian of the common trust funds trans- 
mit the part of said fund derived from income to the Treasurer of Saint 
Luke's, Yanceyville. 

May 30, 1983: 

The Trustees confirmed the action taken on January 20th in respect of 
the funds formally belonging to Christ Church, Milton, and the action 
taken concerning the payment of $1,310.00 to the Treasurer of Saint 
Barnabas, Greensboro. The Trustees authorized the execution and 



Convention Reports 177 



delivery to Ward S. Oakley, Jr. and wife of a Deed without warranties for 
the contingent remainder interest held by the Trustees under the will of 
Georgina M. Bevan to a house and lot located at the corner of Midland 
and Short Roads in Pinehurst. 

July 8, 1983: 

The Trustees delivered to Duke Power Company an easement for an 
electric line to an outdoor advertising sign located on the John Belk 
Freeway in Charlotte. Upon abandonment of the sign the easement will 
terminate. 

July 23, 1983: 

Pursuant to action by the Standing Committee, the Trustees authorized 
Bennett G. Perry, Jr., of Henderson, to publicly advertise for sale the 
tobacco allotment attached to farm property held for the benefit of St. 
John's, Williamsboro. 

July 29, 1983: 



The Trustees, with the consent of the Bishop, executed a lease dated 
the 1st day of July, 1983, ending June 30, 1984 of the Parish Hall of All 
Saints' Episcopal Church in Warrenton, providing for rent of $200 per 
month for operational expenses and $200 per month for the use of the 
parish hall. 

November 14, 1983: 

The Trustees delivered to American Telephone and Telegraph Co. an 
easement two feet wide adjacent to the sidewalk along the 6600 block of 
The Plaza fronting All Saints' Church, Charlotte, for a consideration of 
$500.00, a part of the land described in deed to the Trustees registered in 
Book 2816, page 545. 

November 22, 1983: 

A meeting of the Trustees of the Diocese, at which the Rt. Rev. Robert 
Estill, Mr. Joseph B. Cheshire, Jr. and A.L. Purrington, Jr. were present, 
was held at the Diocesan House, November 22, 1983. Mrs. Letty 
Magdanz was also present and Mr. Haywood was absent. 



178 Diocese of North Carolina 



Subject to the approval of the Standing Committee, the Trustees 
authorized the sale of the tobacco allotment attached to a farm held for 
the benefit of Christ Church, Milton, for $6,434. The Trustees directed 
that the proceeds be placed in the Diocesan trust originally established 
for Christ Church, Milton. 

After investigation by Mrs. Magdanz, it appearing that all the known 
living members of Christ Church, Milton, have transferred to St. Luke's, 
Yanceyville, except members who transferred out of the Diocese, the ac- 
tion of the Trustees in designating the income from the funds held for the 
benefit of Christ Church, Milton, to be paid to the Treasurer of St. Luke's, 
Yanceyville, was confirmed. 

The Trustees directed that funds derived from the sale of tobacco allot- 
ment on property held for the benefit of St. John's, Williamsboro, be 
transferred to the common trust fund and the income paid to the St. 
John's Committee for use in respect of St. John's. 

The Trustees authorized the payment of $520 derived from an ease- 
ment adjacent to the property of All Saints', Charlotte, to be paid to the 
Treasurer of All Saints', Charlotte, provided that the sum be used only for 
capital expenditures. 

Bishop Estill being of the opinion that St. Matthias' Church, Louisburg, 
would not in the immediate future be inclined to build on a lot held for its 
benefit on Bunn Road and that the congregation is satisfied with the pre- 
sent renovated church building, the Trustees expressed the opinion that a 
sale of the Bunn Road property, the proceeds to be held for the benefit of 
St. Matthias', was advisable. 

The Trustees attach a list of the Trusts of the Diocese with their respec- 
tive values at September 30, 1983.

The benefits quoted above do not take into account the recent benefit 
improvements approved by the Board of Trustees scheduled to go into ef- 
fect on October 1, 1983. These improvements increase total benefits to 
the clergy and their families by an estimated 6%. These improvements 
were made possible by the record growth and investment performance 
achieved by the Fund over the past fiscal year. A rising stock market 
along with a strategically well-positioned investment portfolio helped the 
Fund reach total assets by year-end of over $735 million. Our stock port- 
folio scored a total return of 59% during this time in comparison with a 
return of 44% for the Standard and Poor's index of 500 stocks, and 46% 
for the Dow Jones average. Should the 1983 market values be sustained, 
the Fund anticipates making future benefit improvements. 

Several important legislative and regulatory developments occurred 
during the year. The Social Security Act Amendments of 1983 sharply in- 
creased Social Security taxes for the clergy, beginning in 1984. The Fund 
monitored the legislation carefully, calling attention to the Church's 
views on the various tax proposals. The Fund met with at least partial 
success, as the increased self-employment Social Security tax rate of 14% 
for the clergy in 1984 was reduced to 11.3% primarily as a result of 
specific recommendations made to Congress by the Fund and others. 

Also, early in 1983, the IRS issued Revenue Ruling 83-3, which 
prevents ministers who own their own homes from taking tax deductions 
for mortgage interest and real estate taxes paid if those monies have come 
from a tax-free housing allowance. This new ruling is effective January 1, 
1985 for ministers who owned their own homes prior to January 3, 1983; 
for all others, it became effective July 1 , 1983 or earlier.

Report of the Historiographer 

It is gratifying to report that at long last an official depository of 
diocesan archives has been established at the Diocesan House. Further- 
more, a professional archivist has been employed to arrange and make 
available all types of diocesan records, in particular the existing papers of 
our Bishops. I have already deposited in the archives most of my cor- 
respondence as Historiographer of the Diocese since 1937. Also, I have 
turned over to the archives the correspondence and documents relating 



182 Diocese of North Carolina 



to the history and restoration of St. John's Church, Williamsborough, 

N.C. 

On June the fifth of this year the parish of St. Bartholomew's, Pittsboro, 
celebrated the 150th anniversary of the consecration of their church. An 
important part of the celebration was the publication of an excellent 
history of St. Bartholomew's from 1833 to 1983 by Martha Hope Smith, a 
parishioner. 

In the course of the past year the usual number of letters requesting in- 
formation about the history of various parishes in the Diocese have been 
received and answered.

Report of the Clergy 
Deployment Commission 

Mil 

While our title "Clergy Deployment Commission" may conjure up vi- 
sions of war rooms and of convoys of men and material, we are in fact 
concerned specifically with the gifts of the clergy and congregations of 
the Episcopal Church and with those gifts being used to their fullest in 
the ministries our Lord would call us to do. Our work is with individual 
clergy who are seeking to assess their gifts and the use thereof and with 
congregations which seek to employ clergy complementary to their 
needs. A few more details of how we operate may be useful. 



First, the way our Diocese carries out this ministry is unique, since we 
do not have a person or persons on the Diocesan staff performing this 
function, as is the case elsewhere in the Episcopal Church. The volun- 
teers are three commission members, who serve to assist clergy in keep- 
ing their CDO profiles up-to-date, and the chairman, who works with 
congregations seeking clergy and with clergy actively seeking a change 
cure. 

Second, we work with great flexibility to address the needs of in- 
dividual clergy and the unique circumstances of each congregation. 
Thus, the manner in which we work varies greatly and includes no 
prescribed format or operating procedure that is imposed on any party 
involved. 



Convention Reports 183 



In addition to our work with individual clergy and congregations, we 
sponsored, in September, a conference for clergy interested in examining 
the use of their gifts as well as for clergy desiring to move. 

Our work with congregations is at its best when it is coordinated with 
the work of our Diocesan Vacancy Consultants. With few exceptions 
those congregations which have been through a complete vacancy con- 
sultation process are much more articulate as to their specific needs for 
ordained ministry, feel more secure about their own uniqueness and gifts 
as congregations, and tend to care better for clergy involved in the search 
process. These congregations are able to make profitable use of all the 
deployment systems presently found in the Episcopal Church and are 
better equipped for the process of evaluating clergy candidates. 

The work with clergy varies from routine administrative help in up- 
dating computer profiles to engaging in the deeper searchings of vocation 
and call. Each ordained person brings a particular mix of gifts, ex- 
periences, and hopes for ministries. We hope that we honor those per- 
sons in our time with them and that they find that they are able to offer to 
our Lord and His Church the gifts entrusted to them. 

The Commission is in almost daily contact with counterparts in other 
dioceses, since the ministry we seek to carry out cannot be confined to 
the limits of North Carolina. 

It is a privilege to share with clergy and congregations at these impor- 
tant times in their lives, and it is exciting to be part of this important 
ministry as it is exercised within the Episcopal Church. 

The Rev. Joel T. Keys 



Report of the Commission on Ministry 

During the course of the year the Commission has met seven times in- 
terviewing persons for Postulancy, Candidacy, Diaconate and Priest- 
hood. In this Diocese a one-year internship in a parish is required of 
aspirants who are recommended in January for Postulancy. This Intern- 
ship, generally served on weekends, is under the supervision of a parish 
clergy person. A period of six months in the Postulancy is required by the 
Canon before a person may apply to become a Candidate. The Canon re- 
quires a year and a half as a Candidate before application for Ordination 



D 



184 Diocese of North Carolina 



as a Deacon, although this may be shortened at the Bishop's discretion to 
a period of six months. A Diaconate of one year is required before admis- 
sion to the Priesthood and this period may be shortened by the Bishop in 
special cases. 

Each person who is accepted into the program toward Ordination is 
assigned a contact person on the Commission who becomes responsible 
for receiving reports, answering questions and in general being of sup- 
port to the Aspirant, Postulant or Candidate during his/her preparatory 
years. Each person in the process, however, is fully responsible for pro- 
viding the information and meeting requirements as stated by the Canon. 
Members of the Commission should be commended for their com- 
mitments as contact persons. I privately refer to them as the Godparents. 



P 

We now have 30 persons in the process (as of December 1, 1983). Of 
these persons, five are serving Internships toward the permanent 
Diaconate. At the October Clergy Conference, the subject of the perma- 
nent Diaconate was explored as the program. Bishop Estill has appointed 
a task force which has met with him and other advisors to develop a pro- 
gram for screening and training persons who perceive a call to this 
ministry. Under the Chairmanship of the Reverend Dan Riggall this pro- 
gram will be presented at this Convention. It is very important that this 
particular ministry be fully valued and fully understood. The permanent 
Diaconate is not a preparation for Priesthood as is the Diaconate with 
which we are most familiar in this Diocese. 



In March, Bishop Estill and I attended the Annual Conference on 
Ministry for the Fourth Province. Meeting in Orlando, Florida, the Con- 
ference was attended by Bishops and Chairpersons of Commissions on 
Ministry from the Fourth Province. Deans representing all of our 
Episcopal Seminaries were also in attendance. The major emphasis of the 
conference was on standards for recruitment, training and screening of 
Aspirants for Holy Orders. Considerable attention was given to the in- 
crease in applicants for Holy Orders and special attention was given to 
the new emphasis on the Permanent Diaconate. This was achieved 
through a series of dialogues between Bishops, Deans and Commission 
on Minstry Chairpersons. Of interest to all parish clergy and vestries is 
the attention given to the importance of careful screening of potential ap- 
plicants in their home parish. Since Aspirants must be referred to the 
Bishop by their local clergy, it is important that the clergy of the Diocese 
continue to find ways of screening applicants from within their parishes, 
which will maintain the highest standards for ordination while retaining 
a pastoral relationship with the aspirants and his/her family. 



Convention Reports 185 



We feel that it is important that laity and clergy of the Diocese 
familiarize themselves with the entire procedure leading toward ordina- 
tion and the Commission on Ministry will be happy to assist in any way 
that we can. 



B. Daniel Sapp 



Report of the Task Force 
to Study the Vocational Diaconate 

The Catechism included in the 1979 Book of Common Prayer states that, 
"the ministry of a deacon is to represent Christ and his Church, par- 
ticularly as a servant of those in need; and to assist bishops and priests in 
the proclamation of the Gospel and the administration of the 
Sacraments." 

While this servant ministry of the diaconate is an ancient and 
venerable ministry, for many centuries its function and rightful place 
within the Church was absorbed into the role of the priest. The diaconate 
became one of several hierarchial steps that an individual would take 
toward the ultimate goal of being ordained a priest. 

In the Episcopal Church, following this pattern, ministers who are or- 
dained as priests must already have been ordained as deacons. Yet for 
most of these ministers, their role, function and identity within the local 
parish are predominately that of being a priest. Consequently, the idea of 
a deacon or servant ministry, and the powerful symbols that ministry 
holds, are often overshadowed by the equally powerful symbols of the 
priesthood. 

The restoration of the diaconate as a full, equal, and separate order is 
an attempt to clarify this role confusion. Under such a restoration, 
qualified men and women who felt so called would be ordained as 
deacons only, serving the church and the world in this capacity. These 
deacons, most often called Vocational Deacons, would throughout their 
ministry bear the symbols of servanthood and would not seek to add the 
symbols of the priesthood to their ministry. 

Since coming to this diocese, Bishop Estill has frequently expressed his 
approval of the idea of a vocational diaconate and his eagerness to see it 
instituted in North Carolina. Last October at the annual clergy con- 



186 Diocese of North Carolina 



ference, he presented to the clergy his ideas about the vocational 
diaconate and at the end of that conference he appointed a Task Force to 
study this ministry further. 

The Task Force was charged with two obligations. The first was to 
study and report upon the nature and function of the diaconate. Follow- 
ing the guidelines of the prayerbook catechism, we interpreted the office 
of the deacon to be primarily a ministry of servanthood especially to the 
poor and needy. In order to emphasize this servant role and to distinguish 
the diaconate as a separate and equal ministry, we felt that it was 
(*J especially important that deacon exercise "a clearly identified ministry to 

those in need beyond the boundaries of the Church . . . ."In our studies 
and discussions, we came to understand the function of the deacon to be 
a liaison between the church and the world and as such the deacon sym- 
bolizes a different kind of ministry from that of the parish priest. This 
essential difference must be established from the beginning in order to 
avoid the danger of the deacon becoming just another parish assistant. 

The second obligation the task force had was to outline a training pro- 
gram for aspirants to the diaconate in this diocese. After looking at pro- 
grams in other dioceses, we suggested a four-year training program. The 
first year would be a year of exploration in which the aspirant would 
clarify and define a vocation to the diaconate. This would be followed by 
three years of theological study. This study would take place on week- 
ends at a convenient location within the diocese and the faculty would be 
primarily laypeople and clergy of this diocese. The preparation for the 
diaconate should be a completely different track from the preparation for 
priesthood. 

S 

Copies of the Task Force's complete report and recommendations are 
available at a table in the exhibition hall along with other material con- 
cerning the diaconate. 

Let me emphasize that the Task Force served in an advisory capacity to 
the bishop. Thus, what I summarized here are only recommendations for 
the bishop's use. I or any other member of the Task Force would be glad 
to further explain our understanding of the diaconal ministry. Other 
members of the Task Force were: John Borrego, Merritt Greenwood, 
Geoffrey Hoare, Mark House, Nancy Pagano, Dan Sapp.

Convention Reports 187 



Report of the Commission 
on the State of the Church 

Bishop Estill, Members of the Convention: 

When this Committee began its report last year, we began by saying 
that 1982 had been a year of transition, anticipated by the change of the 
Episcopate to take place at the end of the year. We say the same about the 
year 1983, as Bishop Estill has begun his time as our Diocesan, and as the 
Canonical changes approved by the 167th Annual Convention have 
begun to be implemented. With this 168th Convention, we shall be 
voting on further changes of our Constitution, such as electing our 
delegates for staggered three-year terms, which, if passed, will have more 
impact upon us. While we believe the changes made at the last Conven- 
tion and those that may be made at this Convention will work to our 
benefit, we commend to our successors on this Commission that part of 
Canon 12, Section 3(b) which states that they shall keep the structure and 
organization of the Diocese under continual study. It is 1 only as we live 
with and act out these changes in our Diocesan life that we will be able to 
judge their effectiveness. 

As we have looked back over the life of the Diocese for the past year 
we see much that is truly commendable. The morale of the Diocese is ex- 
cellent. Contributing to this are an increased sense of communication 
brought about by such things as our Diocesan Staff taking the initiative to 
be in touch with our congregations, increased use of the Convocations, 
events such as the Wardens' Conference, the Parish Secretaries' Con- 
ference and the Conference for Parish Financial Officers in the Central 
Convocation. We are pleased to see new congregations in Greensboro, 
Charlotte and King, and the exploration toward new congregations in 
other areas. We also are very pleased that we have now brought into full 
union with the Convention those churches formerly known as 
"unorganized missions." We believe we shall be richer for their par- 
ticipation in the Convention. 

From all indications, most of our Diocesan Commissions and Commit- 
tees are functioning well. An interesting note is that just five years ago, 
there were only five Committees and Commissions listed in the Journal of 
the Convention of the Diocese, with 44 persons involved. There are now 
17 such groups with approximately 150 persons involved. And this does 
not include such groups as the Standing Committee, the Diocesan Coun- 



188 Diocese of North Carolina 

cil, the Executive Board of the Episcopal Church Women, or the boards 
of trustees of the institutions with which we are involved. In addition 
there are large numbers of people involved in the various renewal and 
outreach ministries of the Church. We suggest that this indicates that the 
members of our church take seriously their call to ministry to God's 
world. 

When we look at the summary of statistics for the last few years, we note 
what we hope is the reversal of a downward, or at best static trend. We 
had a modest growth in 1982. However, it is obvious, as has been 
pointed out many times before, that the growth of the Church is in no 
way matching the growth of the population in our Diocese. Yet we know 
we have much to offer in bringing people into the knowledge and love of 
our Lord. Perhaps what we need to learn is how to share our faith. 

It is too early to tell what effect the General Convention's adoption of the 
Biblical tithe as the standard of giving will have on the life of our chur- 
ches. We think it should be pointed out that during 1982, disbursements 
for special purposes, outside work, Episcopal maintenance, and the 
church's program grew by $49,722, whereas disbursements for operating 
expenses during that year grew by $753,247. This is the highest ratio of 
increased operating expenses to increased outside work in a number of 
years, including those of high inflation at the end of the last decade. 
While we recognize that it costs far more to just keep our churches in 
operation, we should always be careful that we do not become so con- 
cerned with our maintenance that we lose sight of our call to ministry 
outside ourselves. 

Finally, we cannot help but conclude that the church in the diocese is 
strong and vital, blessed with sound leadership, both lay and ordained, 
and with God's help we shall be faithful in our response to his call to 
ministry to his world.

Report of the Treasurer 

A copy of the unaudited Treasurer's Report of the Episcopal Diocese of 
North Carolina for the year 1983 is included in your registration packet. 
This report is presented on the accrual basis recommended by the 



Convention Reports 189 



American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Generally Ac- 
cepted Accounting Principles of the Episcopal Church. 

Page 1 of the report is the Balance Sheet which is a consolidated report 
of each Fund. The Conference Center has been set up as a business enti- 
ty, and, therefore, its capital assets appear as part of its Balance Sheet. 

Page 2 gives the details of the Statement of Revenue and Expenditures 
for the Episcopal Maintenance Fund. You will note that revenue totals 
$362,717. This revenue includes $1,328 in receivables outstanding from 
assessments at 12/31/83. Total expenditures are $366,997. This leaves an 
excess of $4,280 expenditures over income. 

The Church's Program Fund is noted on Pages 3 and 4. Total revenue is 
$902,528. This revenue includes $6,355 in receivables outstanding from 
quotas at 12/31/83. Total expenditures are $902,479. This leaves an excess 
of $49 income over expenditures. 

Pages 5, 6 and 7 are the details of the 1983 Episcopal Maintenance 
assessments with amounts paid, and the Church's Program quotas 
assigned, accepted and paid. 

Page 8 is the Custodian Fund subsidiary ledger which shows the ac- 
tivities of the Custodian Fund during 1983. 

Pages 9 and 10 are the Statement of Revenue and Expenditures of the 
Conference Center at Browns Summit. Gross profit on sales is $137,096. 
Administration and overhead expenses are $167,843, leaving a net deficit 
before equipment replacement of $30,747. Equipment replacement ex- 
penditures are $1,678, leaving a net deficit from operations of $32,425. 
Non-operating income of $60,000 has been transferred to the Conference 
Center from the Church's Program Fund as required by the 1983 budget. 
Contributions of $7,564 have been used for capital expenditures. These 
non-operating funds total $67,564. The Conference Center shows an ex- 
cess of income over disbursements of $35,139. 

The Trust Fund Income on Pages 11 and 12 shows the activities of the 
Trust Fund income handled by the Business Office of the Diocese. 

Page 13 is the Statement of Changes to the Unrestricted Fund Balances. 

Pages 14 and 15 are the notes to the Treasurer's Report. Note 1 reflects 



190 Diocese of North Carolina 



a 99.6% collection of 1983 Episcopal Maintenance assessments, and a 
99.3% collection of Church's Program quotas accepted for 1983 as of 
12/31/83. I am pleased to be able to say that there is a 100% collection of 
assessments and accepted quotas as of 1/24/84. 

Pages 16, 17 and 18 are detailed lists of the 1984 assessments, and of 
quotas assigned and accepted. Please note that there has been an increase 
of quotas accepted since the printing of the 1984 budget. 

> 

I have found my first year as your Diocesan Treasurer to be extremely 

rewarding. I have had much support from the Diocesan Council 
members, especially those members of the Budget, Finance and Business 
^ Methods and Property Management Committees.

214 Diocese of North Carolina 

Report of the Committee 
on Social and Political Concerns 

The Christian Social Ministries report was referred to the Committee 
on Social and Political Concerns. The report was mailed to you and was 
published in The Communicant. The Committee urges you to read this ex- 
cellent report. The Department of Christian Social Ministries under the 
direction of the Reverend Lex S. Mathews is continuing to instigate in- 
novative programs of outreach throughout the diocese. Work among the 
migrants, the Peace Network, the Task Force on Women's Issues, and 
programs addressing hunger and housing for the poor are but a few of the 
programs that have originated in this department. 

The Christian Social Ministries Committee has submitted three resolu- 
tions for our consideration. 

In 1971, the 155th Convention of the Episcopal Diocese of North 
Carolina passed the following resolution: 

WHEREAS the institution of capital punishment calls upon 
mortal men to demonstrate and exercise a quality of in- 
fallibility that Christian people proclaim to be possessed by 
God alone; and 

WHEREAS the spiritual and physical resources of a Christian 
people should be more properly devoted to the preservation 
of human life than to destruction; and 

WHEREAS the institution of capital punishment imposes an 
intolerable burden of responsibility upon those who must de- 
fend, prosecute and judge persons accused of capital crimes 
and inhumane ordeal upon persons accused; 

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that this Convention 
petition the North Carolina General Assembly for immediate 
abolition of capital punishment in this state and immediate 
repeal of all legislation authorizing legal execution of any per- 
son for any reason whatsoever. 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that a copy of this resolution be 
forwarded to appropriate committees of the North Carolina 
General Assembly and that such further publication be made 
as may be appropriate. 



Convention Reports 215 



Again the Conventions of 1973 and 1975 reaffirmed this resolution. 

In light of the Bishop's stand on this issue and Lex Mathews' eloquent 
talk yesterday, and the advent of three executions in the spring, the Com- 
mittee on Social and Political Concerns wishes to remind this Convention 
of the official position of this diocese concerning capital punishment. We 
encourage all members of this Church to work to bring about equity and 
justice in our penal and judicial systems, and to strive to find a just 
punishment for murder while we witness to our commitment to the 
abolition of the death penalty. 

Mary Harris 

[NOTE: For the text of the resolutions adopted, see section entitled "Resolu- 
tions Adopted. " —CFH] 



Report of the Committee 
on the Program of the Church 

We have received the reports of 22 committees, commissions and 
agencies which have been referred to us as follows: 

Archdeacon and Deputy for Program 

Commission on Aging 

Commission on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse 

Commission on Ecumenical Relations 

Commission on Evangelism and Renewal 

Commission on Liturgy and Worship 

Committee for Historic St. John's, Williamsboro 

Committee on St. Andrew's, Woodleaf, Rowan County 

Communications Commission 

Companion Diocese Commission 

Cursillo 

Deaf Congregations 

Department of Mission and Outreach 

Department of Youth 

Diocesan Council 

Education and Training Committee 

Episcopal Churchwomen 

NC 2000 Committee 



216 Diocese of North Carolina 



Parish Grant Commission 
St. Mary's Chapel Historic Preservation 
Small Church Committee 
Stewardship Commission 

We have read these reports and find them to be in order. Furthermore, 
we are deeply grateful for the work and ministry which lies behind the 
written words. All of these reports, with one exception, are printed in the 
1984 Annual Convention/Reports Mailer or The Communicant and we 
urge your careful reading of them. The report of the Department of Mis- 
sion and Outreach was not printed but our Committee urges that it be 
published in The Communicant. 

This Committee had five resolutions referred to it, four of which were 
printed in the 1984 Annual Convention/Resolutions Mailer and The Com- 
municant. 

The first is a Resolution on Planned Giving and on behalf of the Com- 
mittee, I move its adoption as written. 

The second is a Resolution on a Companion Diocese and on behalf of 
the committee, I move its adoption as written. 

The next two Resolutions are from the NC 2000 Commission. The first 
Resolution on SWEEP has been amended at the request of the Committee 
to put in the full name— Service, Worship, Evangelism, Education, and 
Pastoral Care— for those of us who cannot remember the acronym. A 
revised copy has been distributed to you. On behalf of the Committee, I 
move its adoption as revised. 

The next Resolution is on the establishment of the NC 2000 Commis- 
sion as a permanent commission. Since this appeared to be in conflict 
with Section 5 of Canon 15, we suggested to the NC 2000 Commission, 
which has concurred, that this Resolution be revised and directed to the 
Bishop and the Diocesan Council who are charged in the Canons with the 
long-range planning. A revised copy has been distributed to you. On 
behalf of the Committee, I move its adoption as revised. 

The last Resolution was referred to the Committee by the Chairman of 
the Convention. It relates to the Alban Institute and has been distributed 
to you. On behalf of the Committee, I move its adoption as written.

Convention Reports 217 



Report of the Committee 
on the Administration of the Diocese 

The Convention Committee on the Administration of the Diocese has 
reviewed the reports and resolutions assigned to it for comment at this 
Convention. The reports included are: 

Standing Committee Historiographer 

Secretary of the Convention Clergy Deployment 

Investment Committee Commission on Ministry 

Chancellor Diocesan Council 

Murdoch Memorial Society Department of Property 
Trustees of the Diocese Management 

N.C. Episcopal Church 
Foundation, Inc. 

It is evident that those responsible for the administration of this 
Diocese are doing a fine job. The reports show that much time and effort 
has been expended on our behalf. The reports also show that, in some 
cases, the work of the administrators has been made difficult and the pro- 
gress of our Diocese could be affected. For example: Reports from the 
Treasurer and the Department of Budgets to the Diocesan Council 
showed an expected short-fall of at least $48,179 in acceptances of the 
1984 Church's Program Quotas. To protect the Church's Program, the 
Council voted to make up this deficit by taking the necessary amounts 
from the 1983 and 1984 Trust Income. Without this action, the Program 
could have suffered. From this we can see that it is just as important for 
each parish and mission to accept its full Program Quota as it is that each 
parish and mission receive the full support of its members. When there is 
a short-fall in giving to the parish, to the mission, or to the Diocese, the 
bottom line is— people suffer. Let's all think of this when returning our 
Acceptance Cards. 

Another area of administrators' work being made difficult is the pro- 
cessing of annual Parochial Reports. This task has become more difficult 
due to the increasing number of congregations that do not meet the 
canonical schedule. That schedule for filing with the Secretary of the 
Convention is by February 1st of the year following that covered by the 
report. Thirty-six of the 1982 reports were received late, 23 of them from 
six to eight weeks late, and one of them was three months overdue. This 
tardiness hurts the Diocese (that's us) in two ways. First, it delays 
publication of the annual Journal of the Diocese because the Secretary of 



218 Diocese of North Carolina 



the Convention cannot complete the summary of parochial statistics for 
the Journal Second, our Diocese gets a bad name with the National 
Church headquarters in New York because our Secretary cannot send 
them the required compilation of all our Parochial Reports (plus the 
yellow sheets) by March 1st. Furthermore, if the yellow sheets do arrive 
in New York on time, the compilation will be done there at no cost to the 
Diocese— thus freeing our Secretary for other important Diocesan 
business. It is easy to see the importance and seriousness of timely filing 
of our annual Parochial Reports. 

In addition to late Parochial Reports causing problems, late annual 
audits (those of which certified copies are not received by the Depart- 
ment of Finance on or before July 1) are causing unnecessary waste of 
time and money. Each one of those late audits requires special investiga- 
tion and handling. Perhaps we should all review Canon XX, Section 3(h) 
and Canon XXVII, Section 6 on maintaining Parish and Mission status, 
respectively. 

In view of the new emphasis on the Permanent Diaconate (those 
Deacons who do not wish to become Priests in the future) our Commis- 
sion on Ministry believes that it is important that the laity and clergy of 
the Diocese familiarize themselves with the entire procedure leading 
toward ordination. The Commission on Ministry is happy to assist us in 
any way that they can. Currently in our Diocese there are five people 
serving internships toward becoming Permanent Deacons. 

Before reading to you the two resolutions assigned to this Committee 
and moving on them, we want to add a personal comment on the work of 
our Secretary of the Convention who has served us now for 30 years. The 
Reverend Carl Herman has been a great asset to this Diocese and has 
served faithfully under four Diocesan Bishops. He has been a great help 
to the clergy, experienced and inexperienced alike. Carl has kept us 
straight and legal with respect to the Constitution and Canons of the 
Church and has been a pillar of strength in good advice. He has also 
helped untold numbers of Vestries and Mission Committees. We are sure 
that you will agree that the Reverend Mr. Herman deserves a standing 
round of thankful applause from all of us. 

The resolutions being read are: Resolution Concerning the 400th An- 
niversary of Anglicanism in North Carolina (we moved adoption as writ- 
ten, with correction); and Resolution on "NC 2000" (duplication in 
assignment. We have deferred to the Committee on Program of the 
Church.).

Report of the Commission 
on Constitution and Canons 



I. CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS 

The Commission presents on Second Reading, and for final action, 
amendments to the Articles of the Diocesan Constitution passed on First 
Reading by the last Annual Convention. The texts of these proposed 
amendments were made available to all delegates to this Convention 
prior to the January meetings of the Convocation, and may be found in 
the 1983 Journal on pp. 196-201. 

These amendments may be divided between editorial and substantive 
changes. 

Editorial changes are: 1) referring to "members of the clergy" those 
who previously are referred to as "clergyman" or "clergymen" (Article 

II, III/3, XI), 2) referring to "the neighborhood of a parish" what 
previously is referred to as ' 'the limits of an organized parish' ' in union 
with the Convention (Article IX/1) and 3) referring to the "Commission" 
on Constitution and Canons instead of what previously was referred to as 
the "Committee" on Constitution and Canons (Article VII(l)). 

More substantive changes, and recommended by the Committee on 
Structure and Organization, are: 1) A quorum for the Convention would 
require a delegate from one-third of all the parishes and missions 
(paralleling one-third of all clergy entitled to vote), instead of a delegate 
from 20 parishes entitled to vote (and one-third of all clergy entitled to 
vote) (Article V); and 2) the Secretary of the Convention being annually 
elected by the Convention on nomination of the Ecclesiastical Authority, 
instead of being annually elected by the Convention on nomination from 
the floor (Article IX/1).

The most substantial change in the Constitution, also recommended by 
the Committee on Structure and Organization, is in Article III, Section 4. 
This calls for approximately one-third of the entire lay membership of the 
Convention to be elected each year, and for three-year terms, as a way of 
assuring greater continuity of Convention participation by lay delegates. 
The enabling Canon 1, Section 3, adopted last year is found in the 1983 
Journal page 285, and the Special Rule of Order, also adopted last year, to 
implement the initial terms of the lay delegates is found in the 1983 Jour- 
nal pp. 333-335. 

II. CANONICAL AMENDMENTS (proposed) 

Canon 5, Section 3. Amend to read: "The Secretary, who shall be a 
member of the clergy canonically resident in this diocese, or a communicant in 
good standing resident in this diocese, shall, ex officio, always have a seat 
and voice in the Convention, and shall serve as Secretary of the Diocesan 
Council." 

Comment: In the judgment of the Commission on Constitution and 
Canons it is extremely important to assure that the Secretary of the Con- 
vention and Council be as appreciative of and knowledgeable about the 
ethos and procedures of the Episcopal Church as possible in order to be 
effective as Secretary and well-trusted by the Convention. Requiring, in- 
stead of merely depending upon custom, that the Secretary be an 
Episcopal priest or lay person would help provide such assurance. 

Canon 21, Section 3(d). Amend to read: "It must employ and support 
a rector, and any full-time assistants employed by the parish, and com- 
pensate each in an amount not less than that provided in the minimum 
rate of compensation for mission clergy adopted from time to time by the 
Diocesan Council. For good cause under special circumstances deemed suffi- 
cient by the Bishop, the enforcement of the foregoing rate of compensation in a 
particular parish may be altered by the Diocesan Convention, but the terms 
thereof and the reasons therefor must be stated in writing, must be subsequent- 
ly reported in the Journal of that Convention, and must be reviewed annually 
by the Commission on Admission of Congregations, which shall report its fin- 
dings and recommendations to the next Convention. If, in a vacant parish, 
the Bishop deems it expedient and proper to maintain divine services 
under the provisions of Canon 26, Section 1, and procures the part-time
